Engaging students with educational games

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to play our free educational games designed to give students from all backgrounds access to engaging, interactive STEM-focused activities. Developed in a collaboration between research scientists, educational game designers, and teachers, the games we present in this session are both scientifically and pedagogically rigorous. Session participants will play three free games: 1) AtomTouch lets students explore atom behavior and states of matter in an interactive, 3D, touch screen environment. 2) Crystal Cave encourages students to explore how molecules form crystals in patterns through a series of increasingly complex puzzles. 3)  Stranded at the Forever Mine introduces students to scientific and mathematical modeling in an edge of their seat, live or die adventure on a distant planet. We will discuss the ability of these games to meet crucial science standards and how they can be used effectively in the classroom.
