MEET REAL SCIENTISTS

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

Our educational games help students develop key skills crucial for Australia’s STEM future workforce as outlined by the federal government.

Students learn critical thinking and develop hypotheses through gameplay.

Their game results are visualised in graphs for students to analyse, allowing them to develop ICT and information literacy for digital career opportunities.

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 your child wants to learn. They can finish the lesson directly on your computer at their own pace.

Step 2: Play a Game

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

As your child explores different exciting worlds in our apps, 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.

Students are encouraged to think through the graphs through questions.

Each lesson is a start-to-finish science experiment that both conveys important concepts and engages students in the scientific process

Created by an associate professor, scientists, and teachers

Curated lessons that support student learning and growth at any stage. Your child will meet a diverse array of scientists that encourage them to explore and discover the natural world.

Suitable for students from Year 3 to Year 12 to help them experience exactly what scientific discovery is all about

Primary: Years 3-6

Our science program gets young kids excited about science, even if they feel like “science is not for them”. We help them discover why science is fun.

Secondary: Years 7-10

We help students become more confident in science. Our Lessons and games allow students to gain further skills that they will use in any career they choose to follow.

Secondary: Years 11-12

We help your child perform a real science Depth Study according to the curriculum. We also help them prepare for university so that nothing can stop them when they get there!

Perfect for homeschooling families!

See the links to the Australian Curriculum and NSW Syllabus

We work with the Home Education Association to help bring the our programs to homeschooling families across Australia.

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!

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.

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!

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.

Does your program match the science curriculum?

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.

You can view our ACARA alignment here or download a simplified PDF version here

You can view our NSW Syllabus links here or download a simplified PDF version here

Is this suitable for a homeschool science program?

Absolutely. A homeschool science program requires that students at home are able to run science experiments at home to explore science questions with others no matter where they are. Students should be able to work with others to collect data so that they can visualise and explore those data to make conclusions. This is exactly how the Arludo platform was built – to allow students to anonymously work together to collect data to make scientific conclusions and to learn to think scientifically.

It doesn’t matter if you are learning science at home, playing science games in class, or using the science games to teach a class online, students each get a consistent experience which provides every student an opportunity to excel.

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 what you normally use to interact with the internet: 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 provacy 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.
