Learning Physics Through Art

A fellow software engineer recently turned me on to linerider. It's software written by a former science teacher that allows individuals to create drawings that an anonymous sledder slides around on. Here's how linerider bills itself:
Line Rider was originally created by Boštjan Cadež, a Slovenian university student, in September of 2006. It almost immediately gathered a cult following and became the seventh quickest gaining keyword in Google. Since that time, the ‘toy’ has generated over 16 million views. Fans quickly noticed that they could create tracks, set them to music, and share them over YouTube.com. Currently, there are over 11,000 shared videos with many more to come.

Give it a spin with an art or science class.
