App Description

Embedded in a sea of enemy particles, players must avoid collisions as they
propel their own particle to the goal. New levels bring new challenges and
new forces to contend with. Players have to budget their energy use as they
grapple with gravity, electric forces, and the effects of Newton's laws of
motion.

Hint: Be Patient, don't get click happy. Click on one side of the green
particle to create an explosion which propels it in the opposite direction
towards the goal. Closer you click the faster it goes.

EdGE — On the edge of science and play! The Educational Gaming Environments group (EdGE) at TERC hopes to show that learning happens in all kinds of places by investigating the possibilities—and challenging the assumptions—of game-based learning environments. EdGE is designing and studying games whose mechanics mirror real scientific phenomena, but more importantly, are fun to play.
