Harmony Square is an online game about fake news. The game’s setting is the idyllic Harmony Square, a small neighborhood mildly obsessed with democracy. You, the player, are hired as Chief Disinformation Officer. Over the course of 4 short levels, your job is to disturb the square’s peace and quiet by fomenting internal divisions and pitting its residents against each other. There is a link on the explanation of the game that brings up a pdf with a lesson plan on page 5 of the powerpoint. The focus is fake news, not science, per se. Source: University of Cambridge
