Abstract:

The PhysicsFun4k24 project objective was making physics fun through discovery learning. Our approach was to investigate a methodology and environment which would capture a students interest providing an engaging story and educational value mapping curriculum into that story. Both the story and curriculum are realized in a virtual world with which the student can interact. The proof of concept was demonstrated by formulating a gaming environment for learning a basic set of physics principles where students are fully immersed in a 3D virtual environment and enabled to discovery through experimentation.
