The JASON Project Filament Games


EcoDefenders is an interactive game that explores the science of invasive species. Use your knowledge of ecosystems, adaptations, and competition to design a simulation of an invasive species. When invading species occupy the same ecological niche as a native species, they can wreak havoc on an ecosystem. Select one of three ecosystems and watch the survival of the fittest play out on your screen!
