Meltdown is a cooperative chemistry game!

Meltdown is a cooperative chemistry review game in which students must work together to keep a nuclear power plant from undergoing a meltdown.  As the game progresses, radioactive nuclei will undergo fission and as a result, neutrons will be emitted to continue the chain reaction.  Students must control the rate of fission by using control rods to absorb the neutrons before they collide with another nucleus.  Players must answer review questions in order to obtain the all-important control rods.  Students assume the role of an employee in a nuclear power plant: Nuclear Technician, Nuclear Scientist, Station Manager, etc.  Each role has its own special ability that students must use cooperatively in order to stop the meltdown!

Watch out for surprises along the way such as funding cuts as well as radiation leaks!  Students must stay on their toes because they never know when an Uncontrolled Chain Reaction might occur!!  

As students play Meltdown, they must work together while applying what they have learned in the classroom to achieve a common goal:  Stop the Meltdown!

 Players each choose an employee role that has a special action.
