About the educational games

The educational games are based on Nobel Prize awarded discoveries and were produced between 2001 and 2012. The games have not been updated since production (including potential scientific facts changes) and are provided here on an 'as is' basis by popular demand.

The games require Adobe Flash Player. Adobe Flash is an old technology with an end of life by 2020 and these games will then no longer work without a dedicated setup. If you are depending of these games in your profession, please advice your local IT support. We do not have the resources to provide support.

We hope to publish a new version of the Blood typing game, our most popular game, in mid-2021.
