About the Game

Prisoner of Echo is a physical science learning game aligned to Common Core and Next Generation Science standards. Partner with Jenkins, a helpful but slightly snarky robot, to navigate a mining facility and find missing scientist, Andar. Using knowledge of sound waves, players use the Sonic Manipulator to adjust wave frequency and amplitude to advance through different levels and unlock the ultimate secret!

Learning Objectives
