The High School Science series begins with Chemistry, Biology, and Physics. Students can explore interactive, online content designed with real-world and game-like visualizations of labs, experiments, and more. High School Science provides five primary types of science Activity Objects or lessons: 1. Concept Development 2. Real-World Experiments 3. 3D Simulations 4. Dynamic Modeling 5. Math in Science
BBC Science Simulations 2 provides opportunities for early elementary students to interact with seven virtual science investigations. Students can observe how shadows change over the course of a day, investigate which of four materials is the best thermal insulator, and much more. Students can develop their understanding of fair testing by controlling variables on screen and can see instant results by selecting to view a table or graph alongside the animation. A "Questions" section with full narration provides ideas for investigations that students can complete independently.
BBC Science Simulations 3 was designed to enhance science investigation skills for upper elementary students. Virtual experiments exploring varying topics such as plant growth and and electrical circuits allow teachers and students to experience a wide range of phenomena in ways and at speeds that would be difficult to achieve in the classroom. The "Questions" portion of the software includes ideas for exploration. Students can manipulate a variety of variables and instantly observe their effects.
