Bringing Science to Life

MySciLife® is a safe,¬†social learning environment where science students design and maintain science "identities" to LIVE and LEARN. Students LIVE as a science concept, creating their identities using status updates, interactions, and a full range of digital media. Currently serving middle school science teachers and their students across the U.S., MySciLife is a former MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning finalist.
