Game Based Learning: Logic Machine

Logic Machine is the ultimate problem solving challenge. Set in the Powerhouse Museum’s multimedia lab, this digital workshop will see learners tasked with moving a ball from one side of a computer screen to the other. What seems like a simple task at first glance soon becomes a complex problem-solving mission, with learners needing to use digital objects such as ramps and shelves to assist in the movement of their ball. Based on Rube Goldberg machines, this workshop will not only immerse your class in interactive learning, it will also teach them basic physics and the benefits of collaboration and effective communication.
