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.
