Our team at arludo is creating mobile games that engage students and help them experience real science in the classroom.

 

 

  See what teachers and students think for yourself!

 

 

 

Games like our augmented reality app Reservoir Crabs allows students to work in groups to design experiments, learn about making observations, and how to explore real data to gain science and maths experience.

image

 

 

We have over a dozen international award winning games that teach science and maths in different and engaging ways!

 

 

 

 

SUPPORT OUR CAMPAIGN SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO SUPPORT TEACHERS AND EXCITE STUDENTS ABOUT SCIENCE!

 

  

Each mobile app comes with free teacher resources and student worksheets and is available on your favourite app store.

image

One of us will visit your school to talk about what a career in science or coding will look like

 

 

3. Suggest an idea for a game – and we may make it!

We can bring your teaching idea to life to help students and teachers all over the world!

 

 

4. Students can spend a week with us gaining real experience!

The top 10 people sharing our campaign will win education-based prizes!

 

The winners will be able to choose between different prizes that provide students (or other interested parties!) with experiences in science they wouldn’t normally have access to, such as:

• A student will shadow Michael and researchers in his lab to experience what research is really like – they can even be part of the research and get a publication!

• Lunch with a researcher that studies the topic that you’re interested in!

• One of our programmers will come to your school to talk about coding to give students a relevant context in becoming a programmer!

• We’ll create an augmented reality animal of your choosing. What’s it going to be, a koala? Mantis shrimp? Peacock spider? Your choice!

• We’ll be adding more rewards – drop us a line if you have other ideas you’d love to see!
