Kerbal Space Program - 0.11 Update

Kerbal Space Program is a multi-genre game where the player can create his own space program.

In KSP, you must build a space-worthy craft, capable of flying it's crew out into space, without killing them.At your disposal is a collection of parts, which must be assembled to create a functional ship. Each part has it's own function and will affect the way a ship flies (or doesn't).So strap yourself in, and get ready to try some Rocket Science!

The first versions are free to download and play, and will remain so forever. After the game reaches a certain state of development, it will be available for purchase at a discounted price, which will gradually increase up to it's final retail price as the game nears completion. So by ordering early, you get the game for a lot less, and you'll get all future updates for free.  Source: http://kerbalspaceprogram.com/about.php

BBC - Science & Nature - Human Body and Mind - Interactive Body | Science Tools for School | Scoop.it

Cool game to test anatomical knowledge - drag and drop bones, muscles, organs, and nerves to the correct place in the human body.  If you hit "play again" you'll get a different list of "bits" to put in place.  The only thing I don't really like is that you need to be extremely accurate with the placement - this brings your score down :(
