Educational Games Inspired by Noble Prize Winners

In 2002, I was fortunate to be able to visit the Centennial Exhibition of the Nobel Prize in Stockholm, Sweden. The exhibiters published a book titled "Cultures of Creativity" that explored the various creative strands of the achievements of Nobel Laureates from diverse fields. The books introduction states that the concept of creativity has deep associations with Alfred Noble and is something that unites all Nobel Prize recipents via the recognition of their innovative work. The Noble organization remains committed to the tradition of creativity and innovation and has developed several free online games and simulations. The games allow learners of all ages to experience and understand the achievements of several Nobel Laurates in the fields of chemistry, physics, medicine, literature, peace, and economics.

I've included a screen capture of the game introduction page for each field.
