Playing computer or mobile games is a common pastime for many today. How about designing games of your own with educational themes or simulate models to improve daily lives?
Watch Bukit Merah Secondary School students creating quiz, games and animation using Scratch.
In the Game Design & Simulation STEM theme, students get to design games using the StarLogo TNG (The Next Generation) programme created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). StarLogo is a block-based graphical language programme, designed for educational purposes. It can be used as a model simulation programme as well.
Students have fun designing their own games.
Students will be guided through the design process and basic programming. Through the process, they get to enjoy the fun of conceptualising the game design and trained in data collection and analysis. Students may even challenge themselves in designing educational games to teach biological, physical, chemical or social sciences in future. Simulations of models to solve real-world issues are also encouraged. For instance, students may work on simulations of pilot training, Formula 1 car aerodynamic design and military exercises.
An example of model simulation students get to work on.
