Gravitational Force
Overview

Gravitational Force was designed as a classroom support tool for helping students learn basic concepts of gravity, force, mass, orbit, etc. After an interactive tutorial section on scientific terms, students then move to a section of free-play.

The video above shows the free-play mode of this interactive learning experience, where learners can launch their own celestial bodies into the system, setting their force and mass, and aiming the new planetary body in their desired location. This elegantly designed scenario allows rich discussion on existing knowledge, and stimulates discussion on new possibilities (i.e., controlling artificial gravity within the multi-moon tube around a planet to conduct science experiments.)
