Science Game - Electromagnetism
For what is a tricky and complex concept, magnetism has been presented in an intriguing and challenging way. The ‘Science Game’ uses well designed interactive simulations that help learners visualise these concepts and at the same time keeping it fun through playing games and engaging with quizzes.
Learners are constantly earning points as they progress through the content and badges are also awarded for completing each section. The points can then be used to compete against other students in a one-on-one multiple-choice quiz where the winner takes points off the unfortunate loser. When the app is opened for the first time you’ll have the chance to set up your own personal avatar for the purpose of these battles. The app also sends out an interesting effect or application of electromagnetism every day.
There are a few bizarre quirks that will perhaps be dealt with in future updates, for example the use of sound throughout the app. Within the first five minutes you’ll be frustrated by the ‘pings’ and have quickly flicked the switch to turn this off. It’s also not quite clear what the purpose of some the menu options are, and for some strange reason tapping on the question mark results in a weird ‘star wars’-style introduction to begin.
However, do not let these minor faults deviate from the main point, this is a good quality educational app that offers a great deal for both the learner and the teacher.
