Title: Web Adventures: Explore Science
Url: http://webadventures.rice.edu/
Publisher: Rice University
Description: For young people interested in careers in science and technology, the Web Adventures site is a great way to pique interest. Created by the Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning at Rice University, the adventures here are divided into six areas, including CSI: The Experience and Virtual Clinical Trials. This last area is intriguing and thoughtful as visitors can explore mock clinical treatments for spinal cord injuries or adolescent depression. Reconstructors is another great feature of the site. Through three adventure games, students can explore the science behind substance abuse and even learn how a researcher might gather evidence and collect data to solve a drug-related case. This is a great teaching tool, especially for students interested in pursuing a medical career.
