Outstanding resource! I immediately went to the Lord of the Flies game and enjoyed it immensely. The graphics appear to be fairly basic, but the content and focus is outstanding. It appears that there are games available for a number of disciplines, not just the physical sciences. While it is geared for younger audiences, it does not appear to be condescending or too terribly cartoonish. I also like the options of recieving newletters and taking quizzes on current Laureates.

Although the website has a limited number of games, the game that I played was enjoyable and I learned at the same time. I think this website is a good way to learn while having fun.

Excellent website that provides an educational, yet fun & interactive, alternative to video games. Regardless of your age, experience or background this site provides many games free of cost that either test your knowledge, enhance your knowledge or introduce you to new knowledge. Although catered to the younger generation there is something here for everyone.
