Make A Scape

Make A Scape is an educational engineering game designed for school children and undergraduates to build and test structures under simulated real-time physics. The game helps develop a tacit understanding of structural behavior by encouraging users to construct and manipulate virtual structures directly through a touch interface. Make-A-Scape’s aim is to inspire a wide range of young people to develop an interest in engineering. For school children, the game aims to convey that engineering helps to shape the world. For undergraduates, the game is a digital platform that can be used to teach engineering principles.

Make A Scape is optimised for iPad and can be downloaded from the App Store.


Make A Scape development has been generously funded by the Institute of Structural Engineers (IStructE), Ove Arup Foundation, and Useful Simple Trust.
