The game is an extension of a virtual universe that was already successful in stimulating interest in science, technology, engineering, and maths. Using the newest augmented reality technology, the interactive puzzle game with Quantum Kate teaches kids about quantum physics.

As the world evolves and the divide between digital and physical blurs, we’ve seen how smartphones and tablets have increasingly become a part of everyday life. This has also happened in the classrooms, and the challenge today is to ensure that the digital presence in an educational setting delivers actual and meaningful value. In a world of short attention spans the products that stick need not only to be high-quality experiences, they also need to be relatable. And Quantum Kate is relatable. But she is also more than that. With augmented reality, we’ve also added physical exercise to the educative experience. Keeping the body active adds mental clarity, and this is especially useful when learning about a subject such as quantum physics.
