Submission + - Learning rocket science with videogames. (wired.com)

GNUman writes: Wired writes an article about using videogames to get kids into engineering, starting with Kerbal Space Program, a indie physics driven sandbox where you build your own spaceship and explore space. I have had much fun with this game the past year and I have actually learned a bit of rocket engineering and orbital mechanics while at it. The article also mentions Minecraft, World of Goo, Amazing Alex, Patterns, Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, Fantastic Contraption and SpaceChem. I really like the idea of games that are great fun while fostering creativity and even learning in the process and would like to know what other games would you add to this list.
