The geogames Finde Vielfalt Simulation are developed within the project "Finde Vielfalt - Biodiversität erleben mit ortsbezogenen Spielen (BioDiv2Go)". Finde Vielfalt is a research project of the University of Education Ludwigburg, the University Bamberg and the German Youth Hostels.

We are currently developing our five games of Finde Vielfalt Simulation. You will be informed on this website when the games are playable for you and your class.


We are eveluating the data of our previous test games. Therefore we take a close look at the game data and evaluate the questionaire. We look forward with eager anticipation to the resuts and will tell you here about it!

Our game test is going in round two - we are testing the game in Filderstadt. We've created a test game  to gather even more game data. So more classes can play our game.

We are still testing our game in Bad Urach. Sublevel school classes and also senior classes are playing the game in Bad Urach.

We are currently in a field test at the youth hostel Bad Urach with our first simulation game to the topic traditional orchard.
