Symmetry video game

[Symmetry]
We have created a Video Game for teaching school children about symmetry. Symmetry is very important in every day life. We see it in birds, animals, buildings and in paintings in Mosques and Churches. It also occurs naturally in minerals. School children benefit from recognizing symmetry in nature, which will help them in their later studies. They discover that behind each symmetry a structure exists and related properties are found. This video presentation uses birds, buildings and designs from mosques and old buildings to illustrate mirror images and other symmetries. The video includes simple games to engage the students interest. We have distributed the Video-Game CD. L. Cranswick has agreed to include it in the NEXUS or release it on the internet along with the instructions for use.
