Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: Nobel Prize Games

What do you get when you cross a Nobel Prize winning science or literature project with the desire to educate youth on science and get a web-based game of course.

Go to the Educational Games section of the web site to check them out and learn a little about the projects that are worthy of a Nobel Prize.

My favorite is the Laser game which is a side scrolling game like the Super Mario Brothers games but with science questions thrown into the mix. Good method of adding content to a game. Great for teaching basic facts and concepts.

Conductive Polymers is a little more involved but is a great model for creating game-based prerequisites through the certificate process.

You can even learn about international trade with the Trade game.

These games can serve as great models for corporate training events as well.
