Students and educators agree – Hazard Ridge is the most fun and effective way to learn about farm safety! This interactive 3D video game teaches teens preventative safety measures and how to navigate challenges in real time. Developed by a research team of University educators and game developers, Hazard Ridge is easily incorporated into existing agricultural education, agricultural economics, economics, and social studies curricula.

Main character Elise navigates the mysterious landscape of Hazard Ridge, a rural community where teens are disappearing and the town is going bankrupt, and investigates how agricultural injury is contributing to the town’s downfall. The game’s interactive farm safety simulations come to life thanks to a new 3D immersion format.
