Physics Games

An Atomic Blast

Why do we need physics? Well, the most basic answer is that physics makes things possible. Just think, without the branch of science that sprung from the study of nature and philosophy, there would be no space rockets, cars, computers, iPhones, airplanes, or the plethora of other inventions that we use daily. Sir Issac Newton knew this in the 17th century when he tried to pin down what made the world go round. Before Newton though, in ancient Greece Aristotle used it to start to explain nature. 

Physics can be fascinating. Some of the concepts aren’t always the easiest for pupils, or adults for that matter, to grasp. Online games can spotlight the major ideas of this branch of science. Physics kids games teach about world’s great thinkers, both from the past and present, through virtual examples and simulations. Kids can play with virtual wooden blocks to meet the world of physics with Blosics. High-school physics games get a little tougher...and more exciting! 

Or maybe you're just looking for a little physics-based engineering fun? With the Engine of Creation, players defy the laws of Physics with their creepy crawly triangle. For an electrifying experience, Wirebuzz tests concentration skills as you guide a metal loop along a wire without touching it. Touch the wire, and you lose! 

Astronomical discoveries helped Italian mathematician, astronomer, and physicist Galileo Galilei as he spearheaded the Scientific revolution and improved his telescope in the 16th and 17th centuries. You too can reach for the stars with the physics game Lofty Tower, pillaring up as high as possible, without toppling down.

Explode onto the scene with any one of these games and see how the world really turns.
