Science and Health Games

About The Project

As a service to the community, the Rice University School Mathematics Project (RUSMP) is hosting Web Adventures which was created by the Center for Technology in Teaching and Learning (CTTL). The mission of CTTL was to undertake research that makes technologies for learning more productive, accessible, and engaging, especially through the use of games in science and health education. Unfortunately, RUSMP will not be able to provide technical support for the site.

We want you to continue to enjoy exploring the games.

RUSMP has received funding to redevelop the games using modern software. Please stay tuned for updates about this project.

See our recent Web Adventures brochure.
