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 identifies 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.

I consist of a lipid bilayer with embedded proteins, and I control the movement of substances in and out of cells and organelles. With that my shape relates to my function because I HAVE to be flexible in order to even do any of my jobs.

I am located on the outside of the cell, because I separate cells from cells, I mean that is my job.

I have to be very flexible to get my job done, If I'm not flexible I might get fired. Anyways the reason I mainly need to be flexible is because i a have to keep the inner cells and the outer cells separated and they would enjoy to still be able to move around while being separated so they are gonn...
