Cognita students in Singapore enjoy a world first
Students at Stamford American International School (SAIS) in Singapore have been given an exclusive opportunity to ‘playtest’ a brand new mobile learning game. Big Bang Legends combines gameplay with educational content about particle physics.
The 8-14 year old students at SAIS were carefully selected to be the first in the world to try out the new learning game, thanks to the makers’ belief that Singapore is a world leader in education and technology. Lauri Jarvilehto, CEO of Lightneer who invented Big Bang Legends, said: “We believe by working closely with the amazing schools and educators in Singapore we can pave the way for future learning that combines the best of both these worlds.”
By making physics fun, “students are engaged and excited about science learning”, said Mr Kemp, Head of Education Technology at SAIS. “Stamford American was thrilled to collaborate with Lightneer on Big Bang Legends, which is a fun and engaging game that we intend to use to introduce the concepts of physics and science to our students”.
