PuppyBot Rescue is built on a research paper by
Robert S. Siegler,
"Three Aspects of Cognitive Development". The principles of balance in PuppyBot Rescue are
compatible with the Motion and Stability Core Idea (PS 2) from the NRC Framework, specifically:
PS2.A: Forces and motion (p. 114-116) PS2.C Stability and Instability in Physical Systems
Research and development for PuppyBot Rescue continues as more kids play the game. Playing
PuppyBot Rescue in your classroom helps your students learn, and helps improve the game.
Students playing at home contribute, too. Your students can participate in a real scientific
study, explore science concepts, and develop skills all while having fun!
