Share with all your STEM friends!

Edheads, is a free nonprofit organization located in central Ohio, providing free, educational online games focused on science, math, and critical thinking.  And their standards-aligned sims, designed for grades 2 through 12 and beyond, reinforce and inspire STEM-type learning.  Share these with science, tech, and math teachers before they leave for summer break!

Each simulation delivers engaging interactive video background content and immerses learners into authentic, state-of-the-art career scenarios. Participants can print activity sheets along the way that allow them to record observations, data, and reflections as they might in a professional setting.
