Captivate is the first mobile educational game from the Stern2STEM program. Stern2STEM is a pilot program being conducting by Old Dominion University in the College of Engineering with funding from the Office of Naval Research. The application is targeted at ODU students veterans who are taking first-second year engineering fundamental classes. This application can be used by anyone but we recommend that users be enrolled in a STEM degree track.
The Stern2STEM program is tailored to students who have served in the military whom often have key skills that will prove to be an asset in a STEM career path. We aim to help them successfully complete degrees that will help them join the STEM workforce. The mobile application is designed around assisting current ODU Engineering students in areas of introductory Physics, Calculus, and Chemistry.
The educational games provided in this application are established from popular existing games such as: an infinite runner game, minesweeper, touch guitar hero, and a few more!
Physics: Free-Body Diagrams, Projectile Dynamics.
Calculus: Function Behavior, Derivatives, and Integrals.
This was made by a small developer team and we are currently still working through a lot of bugs so please work with us not against us!
Any feedback is greatly appreciated and we thank you in advance!
*This application works best with tablets and large screen phones.
**This Application was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research under Grant 11899718.
