MSU Engineering: Future Engineers Games & Activities
Learn about engineering through games and activities.
Explore what matters in nuclear science and technology.
We are compiling and highlighting materials from a variety of ASCE-supported sources to support parents and teachers experience hands-on engineering at home.
The EngineerGirl website is designed to bring national attention to the exciting opportunities that engineering represents for girls and women
Engineering for Earthquakes
Making structures strong enough to withstand earthquakes is one thing that engineers need to do as they build bridges and buildings. Play an exciting game that challenges you to build a new bridge that would withstand a very strong earthquake.
Build Your Own Coaster
Build a roller-coaster to send people off on a wild ride. Lay tracks until your coaster is finished. After it’s done, see how people like the ride.
The Fantastic Contraption game gives you many different challenges to solve with different materials and configurations. After you think you have solved the problem, the game will tell you whether you reached the goal.
Hold Your Ground
This game gives you blocks that you need to build a structure. The goal is to protect the king and his guards from attacks. If you make a successful shield, the guards will live to the next day.
Choose your level and then begin building bridges with your mouse. After you finish a bridge, move the truck across it to see if the bridge is strong enough. Keep building to advance to new levels.
The Catastrophe game involves taking bars away from a structure without causing it to collapse. You will need to work quickly, taking away just the right bars, or catastrophe could result.
Choose the right options to repair buildings that have been damaged so that they’re structurally sound again.
My Mini City
Choose your country and a name for your city. You will then need to work to build your city from the ground up.
You have the choice of building a busy city, a castle, or a snowy winter town. Once you choose your city, you then begin constructing everything needed for people to live in it.
Design It, Build It, Fidgit
The Fidgit game gives you lots of different engineering challenges to solve. Experiment with different designs and configurations in the challenges, and then watch to see what happens.
Questioneering: Engineering Trivia Game
If you want to test your engineering and technology knowledge, try this challenging trivia game. After you finish playing, you can compare your score with that of other players.

Exploration of Naval Engineering
This page covers the ships, people and places that propelled the growth of American shipbuilding and the rise of our dominant naval presence.
Exploring Materials Engineering
Very few people know of the field called Materials Engineering. On this web page, I invite you to explore some industrial sites on the Internet that will give you a sense of what materials engineering is all about.
Especially For Kids:
Explore Engineering Through Games
Try your hand at one of these engaging engineering games and learn while having fun! Games for grades K-12 cover topics ranging from inventing and coding to environmental and electrical engineering.
A Digital List: Helpful Engineering Games
Any time you build something or take something apart, you are actually doing things that engineers do. You can build with many different materials, from blocks to straws and marshmallows. This process involves thinking about what you want to build first and then designing a structure that achieves your goals. After you spend some time designing different things, you might even figure out how to build an elevator that moves up and down.
Junior Handyman’s Toolkit: Classroom Projects, Essentials and Checklists
Most kids spend a lot of time learning things like math and reading in school. As important as these subjects are, it’s also a good idea for kids to know how to work with their hands to build and create things. Even if you don’t have a workbench at home with tools and equipment, you can still learn how to build and fix all sorts of things. Your creative skills might even help you design and build new inventions that can solve problems or make life easier.
