Young people or in my case much older kids have fun while experimenting using physics to solve puzzles or engineer machines they can share with others. I was up most of the night playing aka tinkering around with this app.
“Autodesk TinkerBox App for iPad is a free* game designed to playfully spark teens’ interest in mechanical engineering.
To solve the challenging mechanical puzzles and physics problems presented in Autodesk TinkerBox, players insert gadgets, assemble components and test their inventions. Completing each challenge inspires players to create more and increasingly complex innovations. The game’s Invent mode enables players to design their own contraptions and share them with friends.”
