The Digital Frog 2.5 engages students with an interactive, virtual dissection, allowing the student to learn each of the cuts necessary by "cutting" with a digital scalpel before watching the full screen video. Animations and interactions allow students to see the science of the frog's body—from blood pumping through the heart, to joints that can be built up and moved by the user.
The HHMI virtual labs are fully interactive biomedical laboratory simulations and include a bacterial identification lab, a cardiology lab, a neurophysiology lab and a virtual ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay), using human antibodies to diagnose disease. Lab topics: * Transgenic Fly Lab * Bacterial Identification * Cardiology * Neurophysiology * Immunology * Lizard Evolution *Stickleback Evolution. Bacterial Identification is also available as an iPad app.
AC Science provides teachers with an instructional solution that promotes science mastery through dynamic, interactive learning. AC Science was developed as a digital solution to take full advantage of the online environment and instructional tools such as interactive whiteboards. AC Science contains:
Expert Space is a digital learning environment for science and social studies content. Includes multiple reading scaffolds to ensure that all students can access content. All articles are leveled according to the Lexile Framework of Reading. Spanish translations and read-aloud tools are also available.
Classworks is a web-based instructional software that provides interactive lessons, customized learning and assessment in K-12 Math, Reading, and Language Arts. Elementary Science lessons are also available. Classworks units are based on state standards and offer interactive instruction through a multi-sensory approach that includes voice, pop-up text, audio support, video, photographs, artist drawings, and animated clips. The multiple modalities may be helpful for those with limited English proficiency or learning disabilities, or as a Response to Intervention.

Stellarium is a free open source science planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope.
Although developed with college classes in mind, many of our simulated laboratories are also ideal for advanced science high school classes. Based on feedback from teachers, we created special collections of our college labs covering topics from osmosis and the cell cycle to natural selection and Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium to ecology. These specially discounted "high school only" collections can be used on their own or as complements to field and wet labs and provide students a taste of the college curriculum.
