Games As Science Teaching Tools

Do you use any?

Gameschooling is the process of using games to teach. Simple enough, right? Many of the gameschoolers I know, from parents who teach at home to teachers who utilize games in the classroom, say that it engages students much better than many traditional teaching methods and helps them retain information longer. There are so many cool games developed for gameschooling that it's no wonder that it's gaining popularity.

When it comes to science, there are so many games to help you not only learn but have fun while doing so. The game Wildcraft teaches about herbs and their uses, while human biology games like Anatomix, Brain Links and Body Snap help explore concepts like the human body, body systems and their functions. 

Do you use any cool science games in your teaching, whether at work or at home? If so share them in the chat!
