Supporting middle school science
Learning through doing. This app provides a successful recipe for learning as scientific concepts are clearly demonstrated then students have the opportunity to engage in reinforcing activities. It suits the 'flipped classroom' model of learning in that students can work independently and demonstrate understanding. The quality is excellent, length of videos is ideal and teacher's notes are simple yet explicit, supporting the teacher in providing extra depth of learning. An excellent product.
Great engaging app
Great app for engaging kids in science in a different way - it makes science more fun and interesting
