[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none” bg_video=”” class=”” style=””][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]Noble Prize Education has animated games and simulations, based on Nobel Prize-awarded achievements, that let you explore the concepts in a fun and inspiring way. There are games and simulations on tons of topics. Some of the games are easy enough for early elementary aged children, while some are geared to more advanced topics. Through these games you can learn things like what is a blood type, how the immune system works, what are X-rays, how is malaria cured, what is DNA, understand insulin and diabetes, what are conductive polymers, what is genetic code, to name only a few.[/text_output][image alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=”” src=”1065″][image alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=”” src=”1066″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_btn title=”Launch Site” style=”flat” color=”black” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nobelprize.org%2Feducational%2F|title:nobel%20prize%20education|target:%20_blank|” button_block=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” pinterest=”true” email=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h2″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]Find more resources in the same subject area.[/custom_headline][the_grid name=”science”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Cell Craft – Grow your own cell

[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none” bg_video=”” class=”” style=””][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]Cell Craft is a state of the art game that invites you to delve into the world of the cell, learning about how a cell functions while you help it to survive in hostile environments. You will gain an understanding of important molecules such as glucose and ATP, as well as a variety of cellular organelles while going through an entertaining story guided by Platypus scientists in need of help. The game needs you to balance resources and grow a robust cell in order to fight off cold, starvation, and viruses. Can you use your cellular knowledge to grow a super cell and save the Platypus species?

I love this game because it not only makes the process of understanding and remembering fun but Imust apply my knowledge in order for the cell to survive.

There is music in this game but you can turn it off from the menu. It is one of those resources that need to be seen (or played with) to discover the full potential.[/text_output][image alt=”” href=”” title=”” info_content=”” lightbox_caption=”” id=”” class=”” style=”” src=”1035″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_btn title=”Launch Site” style=”flat” color=”black” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.carolina.com%2Fteacher-resources%2FInteractive%2Fonline-game-cell-structure-cellcraft-biology%2Ftr11062.tr||target:%20_blank|” button_block=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” pinterest=”true” email=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h2″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””]Find more resources in the same subject area.[/custom_headline][the_grid name=”science”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Build a Cell

[vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][text_output]Science is thrilling on its own but combine it with amazing graphics and interactivity or game environment and it just gets irresistible. I mean who can say no to breeding their own dragons?

People at Sponge Lab are doing fantastic work at making science enjoyable for everyone, by presenting the scientific concepts in forms of games.

So today I have this superb build-your-own-cell game for you to explore.[/text_output][text_output]build your own cell[/text_output][text_output]You can make a plant cell, an animal cell, a bacterial cell or a fungal cell. Make your cell by dragging the correct organelle from the tray on your right and learn more about each organelle as you drag it. You can even trouble shoot a cell. For example if a cell is unable to store starch, you have to find out which organelle is malfunctioning. Pretty cool if you ask me![/text_output][text_output]build a cell[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_btn title=”Launch Site” style=”flat” color=”black” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.spongelab.com%2Fgame_pages%2FBAC.cfm|title:Build%20a%20cell|target:%20_blank” button_block=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” pinterest=”true” email=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Motor Proteins

To some they look like bow-legged cowboys. To others, swaggering pirates. Either way, the two-legged molecules known as motor proteins are what get the job of living done in most of your cells.[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column width=”1/1″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h1″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”true”]This activity supports:[/custom_headline][skill_bar heading=”Independent Learning” percent=”100″][skill_bar heading=”Parental/Teacher Involvment” percent=”0″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column width=”1/1″][custom_headline type=”center” level=”h1″ looks_like=”h5″ accent=”true”]Subject areas covered:[/custom_headline][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row no_margin=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column width=”1/3″][icon_list][icon_list_item type=”check-square”]Science[/icon_list_item][/icon_list][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][icon_list][icon_list_item type=”check-square”]Biology[/icon_list_item][/icon_list][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row inner_container=”true” padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px” border=”none”][vc_column width=”1/1″][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” pinterest=”true” email=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
