I'm a teacher of technics science in a Secondary School. I would like to create an educational applications eg.: a model of petrol engine with four-stroke cycle an educational game of the transport to teach the rules of the road.

Is it possible to create these applications with SageMath?

Generally yes, because Sage has the necessary numerical, graphical, and interactive capabilities. To create an engine model you would have to decide it to be 2D animation/3D rendered movie, or a physical simulation---I believe you would better use inkscape for 2D, blender for 3D, and any simulation software if you want to include fluid dynamics or whatever. Educational games are probably best done as web application in HTML5---I bet Google has fascinating documentation on this.

All in all yes, in principle, Sage can do this, but there are better Open Source tools for this task, please see
