Educator Resources for Chronopticon

On a routine journey to the 19th century, Tim and Moby lose their time machine! Their only hope is the Chronopticon, a mysterious Victorian device that may allow its users to leap across time. To make the machine work and get our heroes home, players must demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the earth, moon, and sun system. Through five levels of progressive difficulty, players will: make inferences and test hypotheses about the workings of a complex system; use models to investigate the natural world; explore connections between the earth’s movement and the passage of time; manipulate the movement of the earth and moon; predict moon phases and seasonal constellations; compare the celestial sphere in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres; and have fun!
