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.


UniTrain-I is a multimedia e-learning system with integrated, mobile electronics lab for general education and advanced training in electrical engineering and electronics.


CERNland is a virtual theme park featuring games, multimedia applications and films. It is designed for 7-12 year olds to show what is done at CERN and inspire an interest in physics.

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.

Natural Europe

The online Natural Europe educational collections provide the opportunity to examine two renewable energy sources. The students work in teams to investigate the pros and cons of wind energy and of solar energy and to finally engage in a debate on the issue.

Take a look at the lesson/education scenarioRenewable, Green, Clean? Wind Energy and Solar Energy for ideas to use in the classroom

Planetary calculator

This activity makes students realize how bigthese differences are and how important it is to choose an adequate scale for sizes, distancesand revolution periods, to represent the Solar System. With 'Eyes on the Solar System' softwareand a hands-on model, students can simulate the position of the planets on the Solar System andunderstand why, as seen from earth, the planets change the place in the sky throughout the night.

Agent Exoplanet

Agent Exoplanet teaches students about exoplanets, allows students to follow the scientific process for learning about exoplanets and helps them understand the properties of exoplanets. Agent Exoplanet is entirely online. The additional activity also requires use of Excel to plotdata, and additional online labs.

The project Sun4All aims to promote science in general and astronomy in particular. The project is based on an asset of over 30000 images of the Sun (spectroheliograms) that are kept at the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Coimbra, as result of a work of over 80 years of daily solar observations, started in 1926. This is a Sun observation collection of great scientific value.

Science Center to Go

The Science Center to Go (SCeTGo) project aims to bridge the gap between formal & informal education, to promote science learning at all levels, and to assist in ensuring that science not only holds a high place in teaching curricula but also promotes creative problem solving and learning-by-doing. The overall objective, through the exploitation of AR, is to integrate experiential learning & supporting materials provided by scientists & educators into a comprehensive knowledge base for learning open to the public.
