The Angry Birds have taken flight in CERN, as CERN Director General Rolf Heuer and Rovio Mighty Eagle, CMO Peter Vesterbacka announced the start of a new collaboration on fun learning experiences. This was also the kick-off for Rovio’s new brand, Angry Birds Playground, a learning programme for 3 to 8-year-olds based on the Finnish National Curriculum for kindergarten. The Rovio-CERN collaboration is looking into ways of developing learning resources.
“Modern physics has been around for 100 years, but it’s still a mystery to many people. Working together with Rovio, we can teach kids quantum physics by making it fun and easy to understand,” said CERN’s Head of Education, Rolf Landua, at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
