These games for grades 5–9 focus on subjects such as cell functions and processes; heredity and genetics; plant functions and processes; and inheritance, unity and diversity.

Engineering is Elementary

This elementary engineering curriculum offers 20 integrated STEM units, each based on a storybook that provides context for a design challenge, such as creating a race car out of recycled materials. Using inquiry and problem-solving skills, students work in teams to apply science and math knowledge to creatively design and improve possible solutions.

SmartMicroScope iGO

Up to three students can connect their mobile devices to view the live images from the SmartMicroScope iGO. Using six LED lights, each microscope can take pictures and record videos of science class materials, such as plants, soil and rocks. The free SmartMicroscope app is compatible with Apple and Android devices.

Gizmos

Gizmos contains interactive online simulations for math and science education in grades 3 through 12. Gizmos is ideal for small group work, individual exploration, and whole-class instruction using an LCD projector or interactive whiteboard. Gizmos aligns with state curriculum standards, the Common Core standards, and more than 300 textbooks.
