IAP Young Scientist World Project

The Inter-Academy Panel (IAP) and the Nigerian Academy of Science (NAS) in 2010 funded an award winning proposal by Asaolu Olumuyiwa Sunday (Ph.D), presented at the previous young scientists gathering of the World Economic Forum. The project goal is to make the Lainos World edutainment software available in different international languages and thereafter assess its effectiveness as a learning tool. This represents a major effort at globally incorporating computer games into the educational process. With a multi-lingual interface supporting English, French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese, the multi-media geopolitical tutor and world tour application is now available for evaluation and schools reporting via online surveys.
