|Abstract:||While video games are typically labeled either commercial or educational, little has been done to amplify the educational value of popular commercial games. Using data from a pilot study of children playing commercial games we have developed a prototype video game called FormulaT Racing. This game is designed to fit into gaming culture while simultaneously providing an environment that draws on players' intuitive beliefs to move them to a qualitative understanding of basic kinematic principles.|
