A Free and Fun Way to Study.
Welcome to Kupiter, a fast-paced space-themed studying game, built and designed to study any flashcards, vocabulary, or test review.
Kupiter combines the excitement of classic video games with the educational effectiveness of the tried-and-true flashcard set.
Whether you're a reluctant learner or at the top of the class, this explosive and addictive game is an
engaging and effective way to study anytime,
“Kupiter was created due to the lack of genuine, exciting educational games that actually motivate students to learn,” explains 16-year-old Kevin Champagne, creator and developer of Kupiter.
“I believe the key aspect of Kupiter is that it takes a ‘games-first’ approach to learning. I developed the game to be a game - and a studying tool that engages students in whatever content they’re studying.”
Richard Byrne, author of the blog “Free Technology for Teachers,” writes that “[Kupiter] is another option to add to your list of fun review activities for students.”
How does it work?
To try out the game, start by loading a question set. Question sets can be accessed from a link shared by a friend
or teacher or by searching our database for existing question sets. Question sets can also be imported from Quizlet, uploaded from a spreadsheet file, or created by our question editor.
When the game starts, a question will appear at the top of the screen, a ship will spawn in the center, and asteroids with letters on them will be flying around.
You control the ship with the arrow keys and shoot using the spacebar or the "m" key. Shoot the asteroids in the correct order to spell out the answer and advance to the next question.
Works on any device - Kupiter can be played at school, at home, or on-the-go thanks to an adaptive and responsive playing style. This means that students can study anytime, anywhere.
Explosions, power-ups, and more - Kupiter is one of the few educational games that focuses on a fun experience for the students as well as the teachers. Neat, polished graphics and well-thought-out game mechanics result in fun and exciting gameplay.
Real-time leaderboards - When a student finishes a question set, they can submit their name to that question set's leaderboard, and students can compete for the highest score. Teachers can display a real-time leaderboard in their classrooms, which automatically updates as students submit their scores.
Create and share question sets - Teachers can make sets of questions and answers called question sets. Question sets can be shared with others via a link or Google Classroom, and a game is automatically started with the questions when someone visits the link.
Quizlet Integration - Questions can be imported directly from Quizlet, the worlds largest flashcard database consisting of over 100 million question sets, in seconds.
