Get your hands on one of the latest educational games on the market, Big Bang Legends. This casual and fun game on particle physics was launched in Singapore on 23 March. You can download it for free from the Apple Appstore. It is the first game by Finland-based learning game studio Lightneer and the brainchild of the team from Angry Birds and Rovio, and professionals from CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) and Oxford.
In the classroom
Game workshops were held at schools such as Stamford American International School (SAIS). Students had the chance to try it out at the school’s Innovation Center. “Stamford American was thrilled to collaborate with Lightneer on Big Bang Legends, which is a fun and engaging game that we intend to use to introduce the concepts of physics and science to our students”, says Craig Kemp, Head of Education Technology at SAIS.
