SCY - Science Created by YOU

SCY aims to take science education to the next level by developing a flexible, open-ended learning environment that engages and empowers adolescent learners. Within this learning environment -called SCY-Lab- students embark on authentic 'SCY missions' that can be completed through constructive and productive learning activities. The SCY philosophy of learning is 'learning by designing artifacts'. SCY-Lab provides adaptive support for these activities through providing students with pedagogical scaffolds, collaboration facilities, and peer assessment and social tagging tools.

Vernier Video Physics

Video Physics brings automated object tracking and video analysis to iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Capture video of an object in motion, then tap to track automatically. Video Physics instantly creates trajectory, position, and velocity graphs for the object.

The Racing Academy

The  Racing Academy project provides a gaming environment for virtual automotive engineers and racers to recreate the experience of driving automobiles, modelling how cars behave and react.   Students can change the vehicle parameters (such as the engine, transmission, tyres and suspension) in order to optimise the vehicle performance and get a better understanding of the system dynamics that influence behaviour. 

Random Garden

Do you like games of chance?  Does randomness intrigue you?

Random Garden is a microworld that lets the learner manipulate the sample space of a peculiar random generator. According to math literature, the concept of randomness presents some key aspects that characterize its nature.
