Abstract: 
We present the design of the Legends of Alkhimia game and game-based learning curriculum as a model of 21st century science education. The 21st century knowledge economiy demands knowledge producers and innovators. However, current public educational systems are generally designed for content mastery instead of knowledge production. Science is often learned as a product, failing to incorporate the process that makes science and helps students think scientifically. In this paper, we present the theoretical constructs underlying the design of the Legends of Alkhimia game and learning program. We frame science learning as a science-in-the-making process similar to that of the ancient Alchemists. We also depict the products of our design: a 6-level computer game and an 8-session role-playing curriculum.
