Lander game

This educational physics game was designed and created by a team of third year Natural Sciences students here at the University of Exeter.

The game is designed to impart an understanding of the forces involved in landing an object on a celestial body, as well as knowledge of key astrophysical concepts and terminology.

There are also accompanying web pages and YouTube videos which have been produced as further supporting educational materials.

The game was presented in an exhibition at the IOP’s Festival of Physics in 2016. The festival was aimed at people aged 12+, and the game received positive feedback from all ages.
