Oregon Trail For Students

Oregon Trail for students

The Oregon Trail series, comprising classic computer games, has its roots dating back to 1971 and was officially launched by MECC in 1974.

Developed by Bill Heinemann, Don Rawitsch, and Paul Dillenberger, these straightforward games were designed as educational tools to teach schoolchildren about the experiences of 19th-century pioneers embarking on the Oregon Trail.

Today, the series is readily accessible directly in your web browser. You can also enjoy it on your mobile or tablet, or in a traditional web browser, at any time and from anywhere.
