  • Nobelprizehttp://www.nobelprize.org/educational/Nobelprize is the Official Web Site of the Nobel Prize. There are several games available for free at the site. Games include: Blood Typing Game, The DNA – the Double Helix Game, Immune System Game, Pavlov’s Dog Game and many more.

Other site with cool online games for college students include:

  • Active Worldshttps://www.activeworlds.com/web/index.php : You can participate or build a virtual world, custom brand that world and more with this game that businesses and educational institutes use for problem solving, strategics and communication.
  • CyberCiegehttp://cisr.nps.edu/cyberciege/ : Sponsored by the U.S. Navy, this game was designed to teach network security concepts and it is used as a training tool by agencies of the U.S. government, universities and community colleges. The game is freely available to the U.S. Government and a no-cost license is available for educational institutions. If you have other reasons to use this game, you can learn more about how to obtain it under “Downloads” tab in the site’s menu.
  • Entropia Universehttp://www.entropiauniverse.com/ : This site is billed as the first virtual universe with a real cash economy. Join six currently active planets to have fun and to learn skill levels.
  • Second Lifehttp://secondlife.com/ : If you haven’t yet heard about Second Life — even if you do not participate — then you’ve been computer-deprived. This is the largest user-created 3D virtual world community, used by individuals, businesses and educational institutions for socializing, problem-solving, brain-storming and more.
  • Games for the Brainhttp://www.gamesforthebrain.com/ : Don’t let the simplicity of this site fool you — the games are fun and the skills learned are priceless.
