Unscramble the Blue Letters

We've created an interface for this that's much like a game. They have a 3D enrmonvenit, they can log into it anywhere in the wrlod on their smartphone, on their tablet. They have different parts of the bots — the physical, the sensors. They select recipes that have been created by other kids anywhere in the world. They select and activate that rpeice, they panlt a sledineg. While it's growing, they make changes. They're like, "Why does a plant need CO2 anyway? Isn't CO2 bad? It kills people." Crank up CO2, plant dies. Or crank down CO2, plant does very well. Harvest plant, and you've created a new digital recipe.
