Game sunday: Learning the laws of physics by gaming

What’s the best way to teach the laws of physics? In the past students would have thrown objects from a roof and count the number of seconds it takes to get down. But with Crayon Physics Deluxe they can learn the laws in a really creative way; by drawing doodles.

Crayon Physics Deluxe is a 2D physics puzzle game. In this game you have to move a ball towards a target. It’s up to you to come up with innovative ways to move it. All the objects you draw change in real physical objects, which can range from stones to wheels and leverages. I believe this is a great way for children to have fun while learning.

Unfortunately the release date is: ‘when it’s done’
