Inspired by: During my work as a university faculty, I realized that the new generation of students gets very board quickly of the conventional teaching methods such as lectures and presentations. Therefore, I came up with an innovative idea to have the whole syllabus of the Heat Engine course in a form of an animation video game. Since young people like very much to play PlayStation games, so I told them “OK, that is fine. You can play and study the course at the same time!”, so they got very excited. I collaborated with one of the animation companies and developed the trailer of the game and then I designed the whole game. I am currently working on establishing a company to develop similar games for other courses.
