Games for Weather, Climate and Atmospheric Science Education

Games for Weather, Climate and Atmospheric Science Education

The UCAR Center for Science Education has a small (but growing!) collection of games related to weather, climate, atmospheric science and space weather education. Check out the links to our games below.

The Center also has a modest collection of interactives and simulations related to atmospheric science topics.

Click here for a larger list of games, simulations, and virtual labs about weather, climate, the atmospheric sciences, and the Sun and space weather. The larger list of games, sims and virtual labs includes items from many different sources (not just us!).

Clouds Memory Game
Test your memory while you learn about clouds! Click on tiles to reveal photos of clouds - and try to find a matching pair.
Atmospheric Chemistry Memory Game
Test your memory while you learn about the chemistry of Earth's atmosphere! Click on tiles to reveal pictures of molecules that play an important role in the chemistry and composition of our atmosphere. Try to find matching pairs of pictures.
ENSO Sorting Game
Sort pictures of El Niño and La Niña conditions based on sea-surface temperatures.
Cloud Sorting Game
Sort photos of clouds by altitude, by composition, and into groups based on whether they are smooth or turbulent.
Sun Sorting Game
Sort pictures of the Sun and its features by temperature or by time in the sunspot cycle.
Sun and Space Weather Memory Game

Gameshow

Students participate in a quiz show on the nature of science to assess their knowledge and understanding as a fun review of content already covered.

Solar Eclipse Memory Game
Test your memory while you learn about eclipses of the Sun. Click on tiles to reveal pictures of solar eclipses and maps of the path of the November 2012 eclipse in Australia. Try to find matching pairs of pictures.
