The Socially Responsible Behaviour through Embodied Thinking (SORBET) Project was developed by Dr Kenneth Y T Lim, Research Scientist at the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice, in March 2020 to help students understand the importance of social distancing. The response to the SORBET Project has been overwhelmingly positive, and it was selected as a case study at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) course on 'Formative Evaluation for Educational Product Development’.

Currently, under the auspices of the NTU Undergraduate Research Experience on Campus (URECA) programme, Dr Lim is working with Mr Tan Boon Hing, an undergraduate from the School of Computer Science and Engineering, NTU, to port the SORBET Project to a mobile version. URECA aims to enrich student learning by giving them the opportunity to situate their theoretical knowledge in actual research work. Dr Lim and Mr Tan are working on porting the SORBET Project from a desktop application to a smartphone/tablet mobile version, and, with the students from HGSE, they are exploring the affordances for learning on the mobile version of the SORBET Project.
