Eduweb develops online, multi-media learning games and activities for museums, zoos, universities, and other educational organizations. They archive the links to these, playful, thought-provoking, award-winning interactives for science, and a wide variety of other subjects, at their website. Most of the content is absolutely free.

When you get to the website you’ll see a sign-up form to receive email notifications whenever a new game is available.

Below that is the featured new game, and to the left of your screen is an icon menu of the “Latest and Greatest” activities they have produced.

Use the menu bar right above the sign-in form to access the learning games by subject or grade level (K-12). Subjects include: Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Natural History, History, People & Cultures, Reading Strategies, Economics, and the following Science categories:

  • Earth & Space Science — Learn about black holes, living in outer space, extraterrestrial intelligence, how to engineer a spacecraft, how to build a bridge in earthquake country, and more
  • Engineering & Technology — Command a submarine, design a satellite, take a virtual tour of a research vessel, learn about microscopy and nano-visualization, and explore solar energy
  • Health & Medicine — Find out about acids and bacteria that cause tooth decay, experiment to find the healthiest foods and cleaning habits to maintain a healthy smile

Many of these compelling and effective learning interactives include role play simulation. For example, become a member of a wolf pack in Yellowstone National Park. Explore the wilderness, hunt elk, find a mate, raise pups, and ensure the survival of your pack. As explained at the site, “The WolfQuest experience goes beyond the game with an active online community where you can discuss the game with other players, chat with wolf biologists, and share artwork and stories about wolves.”

This is really a remarkable learning resource. Bookmark it to return often.
