In this animated program,
users create a new giant panda habitat by dragging objects
such as “climbing trees,”
“shallow pools,” and “bamboo” into
the habitat. Users learn that developing a successful habitat
at a zoo requires a careful balance between the needs of
the animals, visitors, and staff. If the user develops a “successful” habitat,
two animated giant pandas walk out and explore the space.
