Fire Tag is a live-action ecosystem simulation for curious humans of all ages. It is both a game and an experiment. In Fire Tag, players take on one of four roles - Grass, Shrub, Fire, and Rain. Being both a game and a simulation, Fire Tag is also an experiment in landscape ecology. During the game proper, players learn basic ecological facts through play. During the post-game discussion, the game facilitator (a.k.a. Game Master, or GM) helps to highlight parallels between in-game patterns and real world landscapes. This helps players understand deeper issues in fire ecology, systems thinking, and scientific modeling - all while inspiring a love of science, nature, and learning.
