I'm not typically one for computer games, but with the tagline "Be a Sea Grant super sleuth," Nab the Aquatic Invaders! looked so neat I couldn't pass it up. (It brought back fond memories of my old Carmen San Diego computer game, circa 1995.)

Players can choose their skill level from "junior detective" to "super sleuth" as they meet the suspects, collect clues, and book the bad guys: invasive species. It's a great way to learn about

"the unusual species that create real problems in the Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf, and Great Lakes regions."

Rules of play might be a little tricky for younger children, but the game comes with a guide for assisting teachers (or parents).
