Abstract : Preparing our children for the rapid economic, scientific and technological developments ahead is a top research aspect for many research communities and state institutions. In this context, STEM topics have an important role in the earlier educational stage and more specifically at primary school level. This paper investigates the learning impact of using Final Frontier, an immersive educational video game in a Slovak school for teaching concepts related to the solar system. The experimental study involved 44 children divided in two groups, a control group and an experimental group. The aim of this paper is to present an investigation on the effect of educational game on the learning outcome of the children when the Final Frontier game is used. The results show that Final Frontier game based learning brought better knowledge gain values. In addition, the majority of children perceived learning more entertaining and they believed that the game helped them to learn through problem solving tasks and interactive exploration of the planets virtual environment.
