Physical Science

With more than 40 lessons in our Quality Matters-certified Physical Science curriculum, you can be confident you're delivering an online Physical Science course with labs that are just as rigorous as your on-campus labs. Our Physical 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 Physical Science Labs

With our vast library of innovative hands-on Physical Science labs, your students will be able to see how kinematics applies to everyday, real world situations and explore the motion of points, bodies, and systems in order to calculate the velocity, acceleration, and the position of bodies in motion. They’ll investigate the effects of chemical reactions, and study protein interactions at the atomic level — just to name a few 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 Physical Science, which are ready to ship direct so you can save time and don’t have to handle sourcing, coordinating, or any other logistics.

Virtual Physical Science Labs

Similarly, our virtual Physical Science lab options can supplement the hands-on labs that might require expensive equipment or are better suited for digital lessons, like the scientific method, graphing prep, or formula and equation work. You might also consider using our Physical Science Virtual Labs as pre-lab work for in-person labs in order to better prepare students. From lessons on classical mechanics, Newton’s Laws of Motion, projectile motion, torque, stoichiometry, and magnetism, students can run virtual experiments 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.

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 a Physical 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.
