Hi!

The University of Nebraska--Lincoln Extension is pleased to announce that the full version of Pest Private Eye and the Case of IPM in Schools (Pest PI), our educational first person role playing video game, is now available free on our website at http://pested.unl.edu/pestpi

Pest PI teaches children and the educators who work with them about pests and how to control them using Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM uses a variety of methods to control pests, such as sanitation, exclusion, trapping, moisture reduction, and, only if necessary, low-toxic pesticides. Your goal is to solve the mystery at Eureka Elementary School through interaction with characters in a 3D environment. You also pick up and use items where needed to solve the tasks in each room.

Also on the website youíll find links to online versions of a Teacher's guide and comic book, a userís survey (http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FHK578845), and other resources about pests and IPM.

We have also recently developed an educatorís survey (http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FGFWPJQAG) to determine how the game is being used in classrooms, libraries, and other educational venues. Please pass this information along to anyone you think might be interested!

Please do not hesitate to email me with questions or comments.

Enjoy!
