Edheads is an online educational resource that provides
science and math games and activities that promote critical
thinking. Choose from Simple Machines, Manufacturing Techinician or
Nano Start Up, with others coming soon! All activities meet
state and national standards.
We partner with corporations, universities, and school
systems throughout the United States, which help us research,
design, and test our activities every step of the way.
Not only do teachers and students appreciate our free activities,
Edheads has been recognized by almost every major award
on the Web for our excellent educational content.
So check out Our Games at the top of the page to
dive into an activity and let the fun and learning begin!
By capturing student imaginations and igniting career aspirations,
Edheads empowers students to pursue fulfilling, productive
careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
We tie school to work by reinforcing basic skills and demonstrating
how they are applied in STEM careers. On Edheads' site, students
can be surgeons, manufacturing technicians, find simple machines,
predict the weather, create a stem cell line and more!
Through corporate philanthropy, sponsorships, partnerships and donations,
Edheads provides exciting games and experiences that inspire today’s
K-12 students to become the STEM leaders of tomorrow.
We believe every student should have the opportunity to develop
their potential and fulfill their dreams and career aspirations.
Relevance: Connecting science and math education standards to learning
outcomes related to real-world careers.
Access: Giving educators a way to influence their students' future
career paths with online learning that is widely accessible.
Quality games: Helping teachers, parents, and students meet state and
national learning goals through highly interactive and engaging content.
Evidence: Evaluating the difference made in student STEM knowledge and
attitudes toward STEM careers.
Connection to Standards
All the activities at the Edheads site will have connections
to National and State standards in their teacher sections.
Please look for these sections under each activity heading.
Gail Wheatley, Executive Director
Gail has a passion for fun and informal education and a
great deal of experience in informal learning institutions
and science education. She brainstorms ideas with Eric, e
stablishes partnerships with scientists, surgeons and people
and corporations that do interesting things. Gail writes the
grants and the storyboards for the activities, manages the projects
overall, crunches lots of numbers and does the long term planning
for Edheads. She's always on the lookout for great new ideas and
people who have them. She lives with two monster Westies
(no, that is not an oxymoron) whose current science experiment is
determining how many times they can dig up an apple tree before killing it.
