What students love about Wonderville
Getting to play the games and watching the video helped me remember it better.
Every child begins with a natural sense of curiosity and wonder. They are born scientists, engineers, and creators ready to discover the world at every turn. – Shilling, R. (2015).
Wonderville.org gives students the opportunity to discover. Students explore the world of STEM through engaging with online activities that align with science standards, inspiring them to become tomorrow’s problem solvers and innovators, as well as lifelong learners. A dynamic online portal, Wonderville contains libraries of resources that allow students to dive deeper into topics that spark their curiosity. Even more important, as all students do not learn in the same way, we’ve worked hard to develop and share innovative alternatives to common STEM-learning resources, supporting students at all learning levels.
Working in collaboration with skilled experts, Wonderville’s award-winning animations, games, puzzles, quizzes, and career showcases present unbiased and accurate scientific information, all tested in classrooms to ensure impact and effectiveness. All games and activities are based on real-world problems that ask students to think critically, develop inspired solutions, and fuel their curiosity. Included in these well-developed lesson plans are digital interactives that provide teachers with the framework for deeper investigation on a wide range of STEM topics. This blended learning approach provides multiple opportunities for teachers to personalize their students’ experience, bridging the gap between digital and hands-on experiences in the classroom.
