Bringing Science to Life

About MySciLife

MySciLife® is a safe, social learning environment where students design and maintain “identities” to LIVE and LEARN science. Through teacher-guided exchanges and prompts, students personify science concepts, maintaining their identities through meaningful interactions with fellow students. While doing so, they learn research, writing, and digital media skills as they interact with their peers through social learning posts. MySciLife inspires students to learn using familiar technology in new and inventive ways.

For Teachers

MySciLife adapts to any curriculum, and it includes a resource library aligned to Next Generation Science standards. Convenient, online professional development is included, with additional support and practice tools available within the MySciLife user community.

My name is Nicole Nuummite. I can have some blue inside me, but I mostly have grey and black, and I am shiny. I am formed by two consecutive metamorphic overprints of an originally igneous rocks.

The rocks that I consist of are amphibole, minerals gedrite and anthophyllite. On, the Moh's Hardness Scale it I am a 5.5 - 6.0.

The minerals that form me are granite, diorite. The most common minerals that form my family are quartz, potassium feldspar, and sodium feldspar.

Hello, My name is Danny Diorite. I am an igneous rock! I am made up of crystallized magma, plagioclase feldspar, quartz, hornblende, pyroxene and biotite.

Hello everyone! I'm Gabby Gabbro. I'm an intrusive igneous rock. When I was traveling through the rock cycle, I cooled slowly and formed coarse-grained crystals. More about me later. I'm in search for some of my relatives in the igneous group. If you are basalt, then we are definitely related....

Hi its Ellie Eudialyte here! I am a igneous rock that was made from the minerals: Rich Sodium, Zirconium, Cerium, and Yttrium. If you want to know anymore information let me know!!
