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 operating in its third year as a research pilot with middle grades science, MySciLife is a former MacArthur Foundation Digital Media and Learning finalist.

I would have to grow longer fur and change my my food to another type of grass and that's what my adaptions would have to have. I would have to avoid wolves and snow foxes and oth...

If I could leave my biome and go to a new one, I would go to the Tropical Rain Forest biome. I would not have to change what I eat though. I would probably have to change where I put my web as an adaptation. If I move my web I might catch different animals. I will probably have to make the animal...

I would change by not having to swim in pools because that is what I do in the Arctic. To survive I...
