Our Children Have Mad Skillz

I have to admit I am posting this just because the video is amazing, but still…

This is from a game I used to play called Battlefield 1942. It’s a first person shooter set in World War 2.

In case you are wondering what is happening in the video, the person was flying a plane and had an enemy plane following them.  They jumped out of the plane with a bazooka.  While falling, they shot the pursuing plane, then continued falling and landed back in their own plane.

I can tell you from personal experience that what that player did is very difficult and takes many hours of practice.  Children will take a lot of time to figure out a problem if it interests them.  This is why project based learning can be very effective!
