Artemis is a fun multiplayer computer game that simulates being on a spaceship bridge (like in Star Trek!). Five players play together in our computer lab (“the bridge”), serving as bridge officers: Science, Helm (pilot), Communications, Engineering, and Weapons Control. The sixth player plays the Captain, who oversees all the ship's functions and tells everyone what to do, as a team, in order to avoid space anomalies, defeat enemy vessels, complete the mission, and win! For teens going into grades 7-12. Signup required, as space on the bridge is limited to 12 players each session.
