Using the Torque 3d Gaming Engine to Explore the Lithium Atom


The EdCenter is collaborating with local high school science teacher Robert North from Hoover High School to develop a lesson on the nuclear force for his students using the Torque 3D Gaming Engine. This project is funded in part by the NSF Engaging People in Cyberinfrastructure program (EPIC). Our vision is to enhance student's motivation levels through the use of photorealistic multi-user environments within which students may navigate and explore in an inquiry-based fashion.
