News from Nobelprize.org
February 27, 2009
This newsletter is devoted to the 'Educational Games' area of Nobelprize.org, re-launched this week with a fresh new design. Now even easier to navigate, this section actually offers more than just games alone. Profusely illustrated articles, multimedia productions and chances to give us your feedback add to a mix of content which is dedicated to the aim of making learning fun.
Our latest multimedia educational tool, featuring a new addition to Nobelprize.org, the 'Diabetic Dog', is also launched this week. Designed for high school students and based around the discovery of insulin, for which Frederick George Banting and John James Richard Macleod received the 1923 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, this new production places the visitor in an interactive playground where she or he can learn about the effects and uses of insulin. So why not try it out?
Below, as ever, are a selection of our pages, this time all giving a flavour of what can be found within the Educational Games section. We're always keen to receive suggestions for how we might improve our educational outreach materials, so do please let us know what you think.
