We have been fully booked every lunchtime this week. Year 7 boys hurtling across the playground, storming the stairway, one hand clutching the handle of a barely used rucksack, the other hand, a half eaten sandwich.
But I just don’t get the attraction of ‘Powder Toy,’ an online physics simulation engine with different elements and materials that interact with each other. Yes, thats it.
I love this little game. I could spend hours experimenting with wind effects and large explosions.
I have sent the link / interest to Science but as yet, we have not heard anything in response. Despite our misgivings, Powder mania is growing, played by almost all students, high and low ability alike, in the lower school year groups. So much so, I have asked Andy to add it to our directory online, step aside Phun / Fantastic Contraption – here comes the Powder house.
