Blocks - A Digital Building Toy
Blocks is an online building toy for kids of all ages. Create blocks and move them around by typing in commands from a simple programming language.

Roller Coaster Tycoon (Demo - file download to play off-line)
Create your own fun at home with an amusement park simulation. Start from scratch and design their own park with unique rides, or start with a previously owned park and try to make it big! Rides include the classic carousel, the horrific haunted house, and the risky roller coasters! Add ice cream stands, burgers, and paths to the restroom and soon the park will have a plethora of patrons! But like the real life amusements, kids have to fix rides, balance the budget, hire employees, and even keep up with advertising and ride costs.

At Your Command
Pupils navigate a robotic vehicle over rocky terrain, using the keyboard arrow keys. On the lunar surface, there's a three second delay, due to the time it takes for signal to reach the Moon.
