About the Yard Games
Magnet Hunt is part of the Yard Games, our collection of middle school science games. Designed as playful introductions to complex topics, the games are online and free to play.
We created the Yard Games with our amazing partners at Wisconsin DPI and Wisconsin Virtual Schools. Our team relied on the expertise of teacher fellows from across Wisconsin to help conceive, design, and test the games.
