Play to Learn Scientific Discovery
Torque-It is an educational game to teaching younger students about balance and scientific discovery. Players work together with a non-player character to tilt logs back and forth to follow a path collecting coins. To practice the process of scientific discovery, the game keeps a visual notebook of what the player has tried, what worked and what didn’t. The player reviews the notebook and makes conclusions about principles of balance (e.g., weight and distance from fulcrum) based on their observations.
