What it is: Web Adventures-Explore Science is a site by Rice University. Web Adventures lets students explore science-one game at a time. Each adventure has a section dedicated to students and a section dedicated to teachers who are using the adventures in the classroom.

 

In the Cool Science Careers section, students can experience what it means to take on science as a career. They can go through Profession Pathfinder to see which science careers best match their personality based on their answers to career interest questions. Students can select from five different science career fields to virtually try out activities that are typical for the career.

 

With Zoom In, students can learn about different science jobs and read interviews with real scientists. In the CSI: Experience, students learn all about what it takes to be a forensic scientist.
