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
Richard Byrne tweeted this link to a contest launched earlier this week by YouTube and Lenovo. The YouTube Space Lab contest asks students ages 14 to 18 to submit a video of an experiment they would like to see conducted at the International Space Station. The winning experiment will be streamed live on YouTube. The contest is open for submissions through December 7. Watch the video for an introduction to the contest.

Interactive Biology not only contains "a bunch of cool short Videos breaking down concepts of biology, one step at a time", but also some lecture videos by the creator of this site and some Quizzes to test your knowledge.
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 :(
