The Piranha – Science Game for Children

This science game helps children to learn key facts about the Piranha. The piranha is the stuff of many myths and legends. Separate fact from fiction in this game. What is a Piranha? What is a Piranha? It is a round-shaped fish with a red underside. Gray and silver-scaled, the head is grey. It has […]

Types of Chemical Reactions, Physical Science Game

In the physical sciences, we also study the types of chemical reactions that can occur. What are the main classifications of chemical reactions? What is a combination reaction? What is a decomposition reaction? What is a displacement reaction? What is a synthesis reaction? Play this science game to learn more about the different types of […]

States of Matter, Physical Science Game

What is meant by states of matter? In physics, a state of matter refers to one of the distinct forms in which matter can exist. There are traditionally four states of matter which we can observe in everyday life – solid, liquid, gas, and plasma. Think about water – What states can water exist in? […]

Speed, Distance and Time, Physical Science Game

What is the relationship between speed, distance, and time? Well, speed equals distance divided by time. Speed measures how quickly an object moves from one place to another. It is equal to the distance traveled divided by the time taken. Basically, we can calculate speed if we know the distance traveled and the time taken. […]

SI Units and Measurement, Science Game

What do we mean by SI units? SI stands for International Systems of Units or in French, Système International (SI) d’Unités. It is an international decimal system of weights and measures derived from the metric system of units. It is international because it enables scientists to communicate units consistently across the globe. Imagine the nightmare […]

Pressure, Physical Science Game

What does pressure mean? Put simply, pressure is the measure of how much force is acting on an area. When we hammer a nail onto a plank, for instance, we apply pressure. Pressure measures the force applied perpendicularly to the surface of an object per unit area over which the force is distributed. Want to […]

Physical and Chemical Properties, Science Game

What is the difference between the physical and chemical properties of matter? Physical properties such as color, density, hardness, and boiling points are characteristics of matter that can be observed or measured easily. The chemical properties of a substance on the other hand refer to its ability to change into something else. For instance, wood […]

Periodic Table of Elements, Physical Science Game

What is the periodic table of elements? The periodic table is a tabular display of chemical elements organized on the basis of their atomic numbers. It is widely used in chemistry, physics and related sciences to show the relationship between groups of chemicals. Research and then play this game on the periodic table to practice. […]

Optics and Light, Physical Science Game

What does optics refer to in science? Optics is the branch of physical science that studies the behavior and properties of light, including its interaction with matter and the instruments that are used to detect it. So how do visible, ultraviolet, and infrared lights behave? Well, play this physical science game to learn more about […]

Momentum and Impulse, Physical Science Game

What is the difference between momentum and impulse? For a start, momentum and impulse are similar, BUT not the same! They are similar in terms of the fact that they have the same units – i.e., mass times velocity. However, they are calculated in different ways. Want to learn more about the similarities and differences […]
