Agritainment on the Internet.

The U.S. Rice Producers Association has developed an educational game that includes information about rice to teach Math and Science.

The game, played over the Internet, is tailored to children in grades Kindergarten through 12. Kids can earn their "black belts" as they improve their skills in Math, Science, History and Ecology.

In addition to the teaching tools, the association hopes to raise awareness of rice as an important crop in U.S. rice producing states … which include Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas and Missouri.
