Agent Higgs introduces players to the standard model of physics:
the explanation of fundamental particles and force.

Although it mentions several areas of physics that aren't
covered between the ages of 11-16, it's a fun and simple
introduction to complex physics. It could be a good starter or
plenary discussing particles or how opposite charges attract.
You can download the game for $0.99 at iTunes. It runs on iPhones and
iPads, but you can also get a version for Mac or PC on Newgrounds.
