MEET REAL SCIENTISTS

Meet 20 different scientists, learn about their research and ask science questions

Our science portal allows you to run real science experiments with no mess

Collect data with others using unique apps and games

View and analyse data with the help of interactive videos

Make conclusions and gain critical and creative thinking skills

How it works

Step 1: Select a topic

Choose from our 30+ purpose-built video games covering crucial concepts from biology, psychology, ethics and more

Select a game and associated digital resources that allow you to create a program suited to your students and families.

Step 2: Play a Game

Each game is a science experiment allowing students to intuitively create hypotheses and predict outcomes

As your kids explores different exciting worlds, they  learn through trial & error and play. Students intuitively make hypotheses and predictions as they improve in the game.

This helps them learn the concepts being taught and prepares them to explore data.

Step 3: EXPLORE Data TOGETHER

After each game, science data is instantly presented to students as different graphs

As students are involved in the collection of data, they are excited to explore the data they collect.

Use our lesson plans and professional development to guide a fun discussion.

Would this be suitable for a science enrichment program?

Absolutely. Because our ecosystem of games and digital worksheets are extremely flexible, it means that student learning in science can easily be extended. That means that you can teach science extension for a group of students, or can easily create programs for gifted students.

Many of our games also allow students to create their own experiment. That means that online science learning can be extended in numerous ways.

How much does your program cost?

How can you use video games to teach science?

Because science games are fun! The science games that we created are all experiments – so each time students play an Arludo game, they are running an experiment and collecting data. The beauty of this approach is that students don’t know they are acting like scientists! But as they play, they are exploring a new world and learning the science concepts in the game. What’s really special is that when they start exploring the data, it quickly makes sense because of all their science experiences while playing the game.

Using videogames to teach science also works because it lowers the costs of making mistakes. Students have fun playing games and exploring the worlds that we created so they are willing to just jump in and start exploring. Even if they make a mistake, students jump right back in because the costs of making that mistake are almost non-existent. It’s discovery learning through play!

Teachers have also told us that the hardest part of teaching the science curriculum are not the topics, but teaching science skills. Arludo’s teacher portal was built to teach working scientifically skills – critical thinking, experimental design, data collection, data interpretation and analytical thinking, and making conclusions. These are the most difficult skills to teach and skills that students will use throughout their lives.

Arludo is the only company that can do this because we focus on helping students understand data by helping them practice exploring data in a comfortable environment.

Can I use Arludo to teach science online?

Absolutely! We’re experts at that. By using the science games that we built, students anywhere can work together to collect science data. We group these data and then create figures for students to explore. This means that no matter where students are, they can work together to do science experiments online. That’s why Arludo is perfect for distance education as well!

Which science topics can I teach with Arludo?

Currently, we have science games about biology, psychology, maths, and ethics. Soon we’ll be developing more games for physics and chemistry as well. So sign up to make sure you’re updated on all our new science games and science programs coming out! All the science games that we use are created by Arludo. That means we know everything about the games and can ensure that students get the most out of using our games.

Does your program match the Australian Curriculum or NSW Syllabus?

Absolutely!

The Arludo Science Platform is mapped against the Australian Curriculum (ACARA) and the NSW Syllabus in science, maths, and digital technologies for students from years 3 to 12 in Australian schools. Our science worksheets for individual games can easily be extended into other areas such as English and Art.

What science equipment will I need?

You won’t need any special equipment – we’re not making baking soda volcanoes here! All you’ll need is whatever device you normally use to interact with the internet. That could be a computer, chromebook, tablet, or mobile phone. These are devices every school has access to, and it doesn’t matter how old the devices are as long as they can connect to the internet.

If you’d like help setting up your devices with Arludo, just get in touch with us at info@arludo.com.

Do you collect student personal data?

Absolutely not. Each one of our users is completely anonymous to us and we can’t identify them. That means that their privacy is 100% guaranteed.

We think this is really important as real learning requires students to make mistakes, and making mistakes can make students feel vulnerable. That’s why we’ve created a comfortable environment to allow students to learn and not have to work about being identified. That’s the way it should be online.

What age group is Arludo for?

Every age! We know that sounds silly but our Founder Michael Kasumovic is an Associate Professor at UNSW Sydney and he has used Arludo to teach his students, and also with students as young as year three when he visits primary schools. Arludo games are meant for every age and we ensure our worksheets are also available for students of all ages by moderating the difficulty of the worksheets, the graphs that students explore, and the vocabulary we use.

How can you use data to teach science?

Science is all about exploring data to make conclusions – so we always wondered how students are learning science without exploring data! Most science programs focus on wrote learning and memorisation of facts. Although understanding certain concepts is important, facts are easy to collect using the internet – those aren’t the skills we should be teaching kids anymore!

What kids need to learn is how to make conclusions from the information they gather. And practicing those skills is more difficult because it requires that students have a lot of data to be able to explore and make conclusions.  Also, it requires that they do this over and over until they get the hang of it. This means you would be collecting an enormous amount of data on your own – that’s not feasible!
