Pieter Spronck

Teaching Electrical Engineering with a Serious Game

We investigated whether a serious game, in this case E & Eve s Electrical Endeavors , was effective in teaching high school students transistor theory. We compared the results on an exam of students who played the game with those of students who used a textbook to acquire knowledge of the theory. We found some interesting results with respect to the effectiveness of the game, and the effect of a student s gender.
