Filament Learning, a division of the Filament Games, is introducing its complete collection of game-based curriculum, PLEx (play, learn, experiment) Science series.

The games provide interactive labs and “real-life” exercises that allow students to explore complex science subjects in greater detail. Teachers are given tools to review student performance, such as warm-up discussions, end-of-lesson activities and assessments.

PLEx is aligned to state standards and requirements, including Common Core, Science Literacy and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which introduce internationally benchmarked science education to K-12 students.

Educators are now able to purchase the first suit, PLEx: Life Sciences, which introduces students to the world of life science through Cell Command: Cell Unit, Crazy Plant Shop: Heredity Unit, Reach for the Sun: Plant Unit, Fossil Forensics: Diversity Unity and two bonus games.
