Twinkl to launch AR game that attracts children to STEM subjects at Bett 2019

Twinkl AR game

The online educational publisher Twinkl has created the world’s first ever multiplayer AR game that teaches Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

ARchitect can be played by up to four people and invites players to create structures using different materials such as wood and ice, whilst facing challenges and adverse conditions.

The game introduces concepts such as structural integrity and provides a platform to learn real-world physics as players create towers, bridges and boats in a 3D world created with augmented reality. 

Twinkl will be exclusively showcasing ARchitect at the Bett education technology show, which runs from the 23rd to 26th January at the ExCeL in London

As young people gear up toward putting time into their revision for next year’s mock exams - and then A-levels and GCSE’s, NLP and mindfulness expert, Peter Wright, warns that parents should be ensuring young people adopt a healthy attitude towards revision, and be encouraged to escape from the pressures put on them by the system and by themselves.

According to the Mental Health Foundation, 10% of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental problem, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
