Watch the Earth take shape-or assume an active role in getting all the tectonic plates in place-with Earth Quest. Take a passive role by letting the program run on its own. As the "years" go by, Earth Quest notifies you of progress; volcanoes erupt, crystals form and other geological events take place. Or you can test your knowledge by playing with the Earth Builder. As you answer questions and collect the correct rocks and minerals, the earth's 17 plates take shape on the globe. You can also build a volcano or start an earthquake. Talk about playing God.
