Learning adventures are the second component of Through My Window. They are imaginative, interactive stories that feature the Talk to Me characters and focus on a specific engineering topic.
ABOUT the learning adventures
Engineering Design - Trapped in Time: Users join Talk to Me characters on a journey back in time. Through interactions with Apollo astronauts and inventor Nikola Tesla, students develop ideas about how to design meaningful and successful solutions. Finally, students apply their knowledge by helping the characters escape from a dangerous cave.
Artificial Intelligence - Rio's Brain: Talk to Me character Rio has his brain removed by evil researchers who plan to destroy it. When Rio faints and his best friend Sadina has to stay behind to watch over him, students jump in to explore a ransacked mansion and determine whether it's possible to create an artificial brain to save Rio.
