5. The Barnard award-winning series of in-class game simulations (Reacting to the Past) has a number of games for STEM fields. Game simulations are a wonderful way to bring students into the STEM disciplines. Below are a few. You have to register to have access.

“The following chapter-length games have been developed with funding from a National Science Foundation grant and have been played at the Annual Reacting Institute at Barnard College.

Additional games can be found at the Reacting to the Past: STEM Games site.”
