How I Use It
Simulations that add a real world context to careers in the science field. It includes resources for both learner and teacher. Activity help and worksheets are provided for learners to keep them focused and engaged.Instructor guides are available to help organize lessons for teachers. There are even additional links that lead to resources beyond the website. Definitely a better program for older students as the content is pretty technical.
My Take
I like that it includes real photos they definitely add a level of authenticity to the content. The graphics and scenarios are engaging and interactive. The big downside is the inability to monitor student progress. Overall a great site for the exploration of science professions.
