Rovio Entertainment has released 15 new educational levels in a "Solar System" update of its game "Angry Birds Space" developed in collaboration with the U.S. space agency NASA.
Each of the new game levels represent a planet, comet or satellite, allowing players to explore the solar system and learn fun facts while playing the mobile game. Space videos and direct links to the NASA website have also been incorporated into the app to help users increase their knowledge of each topic.
“We’re excited to collaborate with Rovio on this largest update ever to 'Angry Birds Space,'" says David S. Weaver, associate administrator for communications, NASA Headquarters in Washington. "Everyone who plays will find surprises that take you to more information about our missions of discovery and exploration in our solar system and beyond. It comes as NASA is about to complete the first-ever assessment of our solar system with the arrival of New Horizons at Pluto, July 14.”
“We have spent time defining our approach to learning and strongly believe that learning is fun when you love what you do, when it’s fun to fail, when you feel intrinsically motivated and when you experience flow," says Sanna Lukander, vice president, learning, Rovio Entertainment. "Well-designed games are strong in all of those four fields by default, thus offering a next generation platform for outstanding learning experiences.”
