Earth Science Experiment

Earth Science

With more than 30 lessons in our Quality Matters-certified Earth Science curriculum, you can be confident you're delivering an online Earth Science course with labs that are just as rigorous as your on-campus labs. Our Earth Science curriculum is purposefully developed by Ph.D. scientists, peer-reviewed, and customizable to suit your needs, so you can be sure you’re delivering the highest quality online labs.

Hands-on Earth Science Labs

With our broad range of innovative hands-on Earth Science labs, your students will go deep into mineral and rock identification, explore landform development, examine the effects of weathering and erosion, and investigate the causes and impact of climate change, among other key topics. With Science Interactive, you can:

  • Create an active learning environment online that promotes deeper student engagement, critical thinking, and problem solving.
  • Replicate real-world lab experiences online, giving students the chance to use lab-grade materials and equipment that match the sophistication of a formal lab facility. 
  • Expand access for students by providing flexible learning opportunities.
  • Provide students with hands-on kits purpose-built for Earth Science, which are ready to ship direct so you can save time and don’t have to handle sourcing, coordinating, or any other logistics.
Earth Science Virtual Lab

Virtual Earth Science Labs

Similarly, our virtual Earth Science lab options can supplement the hands-on labs that might require expensive equipment or difficult-to-observe phenomena or concepts, like climate change, global warming, graphing prep, or formula and equation work. You might also consider using our Earth Science Virtual Labs as pre-lab work for in-person labs in order to better prepare students. From pinpointing the epicenter of an earthquake and assessing coastal vulnerability to erosion, students can run virtual experiments like these an unlimited number of times in order to:

  • Manipulate different variables, re-run the experiment, and see different results, especially important for struggling students. 
  • Reinforce critical learning outcomes while exploring additional concepts that may not directly align with your course objectives.
  • Ensure practicality when it comes to time & costs.
Earth Science Hands-On Lab Kit

Effective, High-Quality Earth Science Curriculum

Science Interactive develops the highest quality online curriculum for both hands-on and virtual Earth Science lessons. 

  • Lessons are developed by PhD scientists, with measurable learning outcomes, detailed experimental protocols, and questions that tie into the core learning objectives. 
  • Instructional designers review for quality, accuracy, safety, and ADA compliance — and active Earth Science professors peer review for content accuracy.
  • The entire discipline is certified by Quality Matters to ensure the same standards of rigor and quality as on-campus Earth Science courses.
Student Using Earth Science Lab Management Platform

Flexible Platform to Guide Students

All of the curriculum is turnkey and can be used in your course right away. We also make it easy to customize, infusing each lab with your own unique instructional style and outcomes. Our LMS-integrated lab management platform allows you to:

  • Customize any part of an Earth Science lesson by adding or removing text, images, and videos to enhance lessons and guide students through each lab.
  • Assess student work with automatic grading for multiple choice questions.
  • Provide constructive feedback so each student can continue improving for the next lab.
