JumpStart® has officially launched its newest educational multiplayer online game, School of Dragons™. The game is based on DreamWorks Animation’s How To Train Your Dragon franchise, and is one of the first massively multiplayer online role-playing games to incorporate basic science educational features in its gameplay.
School of Dragons blends together three fields — film, online games, and television — to create an immersive online gaming experience for youth, allowing players to interact, play, and learn with familiar faces from the hit animated film, such as Hiccup and his dragon Toothless. As players train their own dragons and become fierce Viking adventurers in the game, they will learn key concepts in the scientific method through activities based on earth, life, and physical sciences. The epic adventure begins from the moment players choose a dragon to train as their own.
