Abstract

The present study is a brief report on the creation of an interactive computer game for use by science teachers to approach the digestive system. The material created covers the organs of the digestive system, also including associated structures and all the biochemical events involved, based on objective questions with three levels of difficulty (easy, medium and hard) to be answered by the students. In case of error in the student's answer, it appears the correct answer and a motivation phrase. In the case of a hit, a startup screen appears with its respective score and at the end of the game, the scores are established. According to our research the students tested liked to use this new computacional material.

Keywords: Digestive System, Education, Computer, Science teaching.
