Abstract

The WPI Science Year IQP intends to contribute to efforts to revitalize interest in science among students ages 10 to 19 by capturing their attention and interest with interactive web-based computer games focusing on the popular themes of sports and inventions. In developing these games, the project team researched student interest in science and web-based games, the UK national curriculum, and educational game design and production. Final deliverables include comprehensive game design documents, detailed storyboards and two Flash-based Internet games.
