We have created the first simulation game in a six game series based on various physics concepts. The Ethers series aims to bring the best parts of video games (goal-oriented play, open-ended challenges, a safe environment for failure, level editors, and performance before competence) to the world of physics education. The game comes with accompanying teacher resources for easy integration into the classroom. The Fluid Ether was created by a science education non-profit and is free and available for both computers and the ipad. The other five games, currently in development, will focus on gravity, momentum, projectile motion, electricity, and light.
