We’re excited to announce our new partnership with Kahoot! Although we aren’t new Kahoot! gamers, we’ve recently partnered with them to provide you quizzes from across the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in a single place. “Reaching young people to teach them about biomedical science and inspire them to pursue careers in science is critically important to ensuring a diverse and vibrant biomedical research enterprise,” says NIGMS Director Jon Lorsch, Ph.D. “Our partnership with Kahoot! expands NIH’s STEM offerings, providing educators with free, interactive learning tools to spark student interest in health sciences.”
Check out our profile for games that hundreds of thousands of people have played and for brand new games that we’ve recently created! Some familiar games include Superbugs!, National Drug & Alcohol IQ Challenge, and The Brain, Pain Prevention, and Anesthesia. And we now have a Kahoot! course called The Science of Sleep. Be sure to check out these new games from across NIH:
- Health Literacy from the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health—helps students better understand scientific research to make informed decisions about their health
- How Does Noise Damage Your Hearing? from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders—encourages children to adopt healthy habits to protect their hearing
- Lung Health from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute—provides information on the respiratory system and tips for keeping lungs healthy
