Featured Game: Learn physics in Vector Racer

Can a game experience allow kids to explore physics in a more fun, playful way?

Vector Racer

Paulo Ribeiro, Dora Jiang, Jingyi Lin and Ru Xu (MA students at Teachers College, Columbia University in the Design and Development of Digital Games program) created a prototype of Vector Racer — an exciting, hands-on way to learn physics in a fun and endogenous way.

Students create their own custom vehicles and learn physics concepts like velocity, acceleration, gravity while building and racing vehicles.
