Digital educational games, interactives, virtual labs are excellent resources to assist learning and raising interests for inquiry or investigation. To visualize concepts or to do experiments on computers are cost-effective and efficient. Some games even use role-playing techniques or story lines. Some games create a virtual journey which is impossible to have in real world. We just featured Zombie Plague recently and thought we should give a review on all those quality sources of science learning games. Most sites are from education institutions, non-profit organizations or sponsored by grants, they are free to play. (Simulations are not included in this post, we’ll try to make another post for them)
Games for kids of all ages are listed. A great resource to help students explore science.
