Nobelprize.org Activities and Games

The free activities and games available at this website are based upon the research of Nobel Prize winners. These educational tools will not only help your child prepare for high school, but also move beyond common requirements. A detailed history of the Nobel Prize, beginning with a biography of Alfred Nobel, is available here. In addition, your child can learn about science, literature and human rights.

If you and your child are looking for games, try 'The Laser Challenge Game'. The player's goal is to uncover objects by correctly answering laser-related questions. There have been many Nobel Prizes awarded over the years for laser research, and this game illustrates the importance of modern laser technology.

In addition to games, there's a video section covering many topics. These topics are mostly lectures presented by Nobel Prize winners, like Al Gore. Such lectures are usually more appropriate for older adolescents.

Spiked Math's Games

One of the most common areas that many adolescents could use extra help in is math. Although it's not a requirement, your child can register with Spiked Math to receive free updates and new learning tools via e-mail. These updates will tell you about all the brainteasers, logic puzzles and math games available here.

A Spiked Math game aimed at teens is 'Mixed Up'. The point of the game is to move lines around a provided field until they don't collide, making the graph planar. Although there are occasional ads, they can be bypassed relatively quickly.

Health Information from GirlsHealth.gov

If you have an adolescent daughter between the ages of ten and sixteen, GirlsHealth.gov is a solid resource for health education. Here, your child will find information on nutrition, illness, drugs and alcohol, relationships, bullying, safety and the environment. Each subject area has more specific subsections so you find the exact topic you're looking for. For example, the nutrition section covers lactose intolerance, weight and more.
