About the game

“The Detective: Bavaria” is an engaging and fun way for students to build skills in data interpretation. Students must learn to discriminate between types of data, understand the different types of sources, and develop the ability to determine the implications of information.  All while attempting to unravel the mysteries surrounding the village of Ingolstadt and Frankenstein Biomedical Lab in this modern day take on Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein.

As a rookie FBI agent, students collect clues and identify qualitative and quantitative data, primary and secondary sources, and discern the implications of data and how it affects a hypothesis. Being able to analyze data in this way gives them the ability to combine information from multiple sources to draw conclusions to succeed in the game and in the classroom.
