A video game company has begun to roll out a new kind of education initiative called Projective Plane Geometry, which aims to teach math concepts through the lens of the film industry.
The company is called “The Flying Machine Company” and it’s part of the company’s new partnership with the American Institute of Architects.
“We’re excited to announce that we’ve been invited to join a project to design and build an aerial project that will be able to teach mathematics and science in a new way through the use of video games,” CEO Mike Zavadzki told the LA Times.
“As part of this, we are collaborating with a leading video game developer, Microsoft, to provide the basic technology for the project.”
The Flying Materia Company is a company that’s been in the aviation and robotics business for over 60 years, and is committed to providing students with the best possible learning experience.
“We’ve already made plans to partner with the industry leader in video game design and development, Microsoft,” Zavaddzki added.
“This project will enable us to teach students how to design, build, and control aircraft, in addition to how to build, control, and navigate an aerial aircraft.”
Zavadzhki also said that Projective plane geometries will allow students to build models using 3D printing, which will help them to get a better grasp on how planes work.
“This is a very exciting project for the Flying Machine Co. and for our students, and we’re looking forward to working with them to deliver the most realistic aerial project yet,” Zampolniak said.
The project’s developers, which include students at LAUSD’s aerospace school, plan to use the project as an introduction to engineering.
The Flying Machine is a fictional, sci-fi-themed aviation company.
“The project will teach students about the physics and engineering fundamentals necessary for building and flying a model,” the company said.
“These will include the basics of aerodynamics, control of the aircraft, control systems, control and communication, and basic physics and aerodynamics.”
Zampolnin said that the project will help students to “develop an understanding of how a building or aircraft works, how it interacts with the environment, and how to think about its operation and function.”
“We are excited to work with a well-respected and experienced design firm to build this project and to give our students a realistic and fun education experience,” he added.
