Captain America's super powers might not exactly be super, but boy can he whip that shield of his with incredible accuracy and power. Kudos to Marvel for actually getting kids excited about playing with a garbage can lid, or this Shield Trainer game which has them calculating trajectories and ricochets to take out targets.

The $25 game plays out like a simpler version of Crokinole, except branded with the likes of Captain America, Red Skull, and Hydra. It comes with various targets, rebound beams, and other obstacles that Cap's shield can bounce off en route to taking out the bad guy. And while playing it probably won't prepare them for their SATs, there is some actual science to be learned here, including basic physics, algebra, and pop culture studies. [Uncle Milton]
