Explore the mysterious world of the boy-king Tutankhamun (rough translation: Living Image of Amun) who died at the unseemly young age of 19. His tomb, undisturbed for nearly 3,000 years until 1922, when Howard Carter discovered the entrance after many years or frustratingly unsuccessful searches.
What Carter found were the unimaginable riches contained in the tomb of this young pharaoh.
The program SpexWorld! Tutankhamun gives students the opportunity to recreate and reassemble all the items that were placed inside the tomb which helped Tutankhamun travel in comfort to the other world as befitted a god.
Multiple environments can be added to expand versatility as well as tailoring the software to suit specific classroom topics. For example, the Moonbase environment can be used in place of the Home Environment for topics that are science related. Students can now be challenged to use SPEX+ to investigate how life can be sustained in space.
