I almost feel like games like these could have some realistic context put into them such as refinery operations and then applied to students/ schools. I am disappointed with the educational games they have for kids these days, and expect that they would take off quickly if an industry worked on them.

Interesting game, looks fun, but I wont fork over 20$ for it. Maybe on a sale.

I've beaten Manufactoria and Alchemical Engineering so I bought this game. It is great, I'm trying to do things with the theoretical lowest period and it is quite hard.

That one was not bad. Is there any more you would like to share? I'd love to start collecting these and letting the kiddos try them.

(watch some one make a seemingly harmless edu-game that erupts in some kind of 4chan episode in the middle...)

Somehow I find the games by Zachtronic not fun. It's tedium and just feels like work, Manufactoria required creativity and stuff, all the Zachtronic games don't seem to put much effort into having real variety between tasks so it all feels the same.

National Geographic has all kinds of great stuff for kids and adults including games. I used to love reading about nature in the National Geographic magazines and figuring out the answers to the games in them when I was a kid. If you have kids they may like it too.

National Geographic Website
http://games.nationalgeographic.com/

There are games there like DogTown:
*Spend time with different dogs and prepare them for a new loving home.
*Play mini-games to diagnose ailments, play catch, and pamper them.
*Each dog has its own hurdles to overcome.

Lilly Wu and the Terra Cotta Mystery:
* Use forensic archaeology to solve the death of China's first Emperor.
* Find evidence in the present and re-create the past using hidden objects.
* Includes special bonus content from articles and the Terra Cotta museum exhibits.

I don't know exactly what you're looking for, but you should check out some of these games.
