About the Game
In this 2-in-1 simulator, players learn how bodies in the vicinity of Earth are affected by the fields created by the Earth itself. Play in Magnetism Mode to explore how ions move into the magnetic field of the Earth, and play in Gravity Mode to learn about how objects fall towards Earth or get pulled into orbit.
We worked with our amazing partners at BrainPOP to create a collection of simulations for their teacher-ready science materials. Our BrainPOP simulations are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards for grades 6-12.
