Who We Help
Science Interactive combines the best of Hands-On Labs, eScience and virtual science programs to deliver the most sophisticated lab experience in today’s world.Dr. James Brown
Top 40 Innovators in Education by Center for Digital Education
When I was first approached to teach distance learning, I was very skeptical about how students could gain practical skills in an online environment … When I first came across the Science Interactive lab solution, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and rigor of the experiments. They not only covered the topics that I normally cover, but in some cases go in much more depth than I expected. I have looked at other companies and I believe that Science Interactive is the best. They provide a college-level experience that is expected for a student taking a chemistry lab course.Michael Felty
Chemistry Professor, Trinity Valley Community College
I have enjoyed using Science Interactive for my Micro lab. The online modules make my teaching and grading seamless and it looks great from the student view. The personnel are very responsive to me or students when we needed help with an issue.Cheraton Love
Winston-Salem State University, Dean, Experiential Education
Before it became Science Interactive, I had been working with the folks at Hands-On Labs since 2007 and I know that the success of our online laboratory-based science courses is due to this partnership. I serve on their Board of Advisers, and I help to support and extend their success to other institutions of higher learning.Marc Labella
