Discover the iBiome series of award-winning scientist games
For kids who want to explore the wonders of the natural world
The iBiome series of educational STEM games invites kids from grades 3 to 8 to have fun while learning about environmental science. They’ll create their own habitats, try virtual experiments, and retain science-based curriculum through experiential learning. Whether they’re taking climate action with iBiome-Changing Ice, diving into marine biology with iBiome-Oceans, or uncovering wetland biodiversity with iBiome-Wetland, the iBiome series will make their screen time count towards an eco-mindset that they’ll continue to nurture for life.
iBiome-Changing Ice invites kids to experience how climate change impacts polar ecosystems and the species that live within them first-hand. They’ll create their own mini-habitats, exploring Antarctic, Tundra, Arctic, and Boreal Forest regions. This beautifully illustrated game develops their critical thinking skills through virtual experiments that challenge the natural order of species in the planet’s coldest regions. They’ll play with real NASA satellite images and glacier photos to study the effects climate change on our planet. iBiome-Changing Icegives them motivation to take climate action by tracking their real world eco-friendly choices using in-game AR technology.

iBiome-Oceans invites kids to explore the mysterious depths of the world’s oceans while diving deeper into the rich diversity of sea life. They’ll build their own ecosystem and choose to play in one of four oceanic habitats: coral reef, tide pool, kelp bed, or open sea. iBiome-Oceans is curriculum-based, helping kids retain knowledge about food webs, predators, prey, consumers, producers, and their impact on the ecosystem. This scientist game would not be complete without in-game scientist, Professor Bio who shares fun facts about 62 marine species including whales, dolphins, sharks, and more. They’ll learn new ways to live harmony with nature while facing challenges like plastic pollution, ocean acidity, and overfishing. Try iBiome-Oceans for free today!
iBiome-Wetland teaches kids about the beauty and biodiversity of wetland habitats through gaming. They’ll explore mangrove swamps, and freshwater or saltwater marshes while creating their own virtual ecosystem from scratch. The game’s food web simulator lets them experiment with 54 wetland species such as Crustaceans, Molluscs, Insects, Birds, Reptiles, Fish, Amphibians, and Mammals to see how changing a population impacts the ecosystem’s balance. Through experiential learning, they’ll deepen their understanding of the interconnectedness of nature while earning badges to strengthen their knowledge of science. Try iBiome-Wetland for free today!
iBiome is an award-winning leader in science-based learning as recognized by the Association of School Librarians, the United Nations Environment Programme, Dr. Toy’s Best Green Toys, The Mom’s Choice Awards, The Parents’ Choice Awards, Academic’s Choice Awards, Apple, Common Sense Education and other notable organizations.
“More Serious games can be designed to entertain while also conveying a message or support exploration of a landscape or concept. Educational games are most often designed with specific environmental learning goals in mind (e.g. iBiome-Ocean).”
“There’s no doubt they’ll have fun, but they’ll also be encouraged to bring their learnings to life. Kids can create their own eco-footprint goals and track their impact within the app. Before you know it, they’ll be teaching you about the environment—and helping to create a better future for us all.“
“iBiome-Ocean is dense with information and kids may be overwhelmed if they try to absorb too much in a single sitting, but like a good interactive e-book, this app invites many return visits in which enthusiastic young marine biologists continue to learn more about their favorite species. “
“iBiome-Ocean allowed my students to discover how food chains and webs work because they could manipulate them using what they read in their science textbooks. I have taught for 38 years, and this is one of the best products to teach ecology that I have used. It teaches students the phenomena of real-life food webs.”
“The iBiome games bring the science curriculum to life! Building food chains and observing changes in food chains as species are added to each dome really helped my students understand ecosystem interactions. While playing, the children often comment on loving the scientist, they marvel at pictures of the real-life organisms, and are proud of themselves after completing a dome. The iBiome games are a fun addition to my science classroom.”
“This smartly designed environmental sim lets kids explore three wetland habitats. By drawing connections between different species and creating a web, kids learn about producers and consumers, and about predator/prey relationships.”
“See what happens when you add extra of one species to your biome. Students will see right away how species depend on one another and how easy it is for an ecosystem to get off-balance.”
