Nebula is an immersive and story-based system that helps reinforce skills of emotional intelligence, critical for both youth in classrooms and beyond. By presenting students with hard choices that have no obvious answer, they are forced to weigh the pros and cons of each situation, spurring active empathy and engagement and allowing teachers to actively tailor discussion and classes to the choices the students make.
