Fans of games like Angry Birds and Cut The Rope will enjoy the physics based puzzles of “Cargo Bridge”. Charged with building bridges to help your workers get cargo back to base, the game is a treat for any aspiring engineers. Using applied physics and enginutiy, students will really enjoy playing as well as gaining an understanding for laws of force and gravity.
Not as animated or graphically advanced as other games for school, Little Alchemy is still totally addictive. Following a very simple concept, students are given four base elements (water, fire, earth, air) with which to create new ones. For example, water + fire gives you the new element of steam. Yes, sounds simple, but you just keep wanting to see what else can be made.

Qbox – Wisdom Of The AgesAnother word game, Qbox is a bit different to your standard literary challenge. Students are given a phrase from either ‘old times’, ‘middle ages’ or ‘modern times’ where all the letters are mixed up. The task is then re-arrange letters in each column to complete the quote. A lot of fun, Qbox challenges both word skills and general knowledge.
