Physicists Study Angry Birds?
The popular, affordable mobile game Angry Birds has more then just gamers and ordinary folk flocking to its addictive game. Physicists are taking to the game for an entirely different reason.
The physicists are using the game to figure out the atmospheric composition of a planet, or the motion of a new never before seen asteroid. By testing the laws of physics with Angry Birds by getting a chance to explore nature and how the universe behaves that is not a lot more accessible and fun. Rhett Allain has made a name for himself analyzing and writing about physics found in different forms of pop culture. The game explores the magic of physics by exploring everything we are interested in and find out how complicated it is. Allain says that while the game does break some of the laws of physics it does have its own set of rules.
Angry Birds will be added to some cirriculum starting next year and the game will teach things like conservation of momentum and projectile motion. The fact that the video game doesn’t always use the rules of real world physics and just make things more interesting and challenging for students. What do you think of Angry birds being used in classrooms?
