Pivot Interactives transforms science teaching through active learning and engaging scientific phenomena

App of the Week

Pivot Interactives, an award-winning platform for authentic, interactive video-based science activities, transform science teaching through active learning and scientific phenomena. Developed by educators, Pivot Interactives makes teaching science easier for teachers and more engaging for students.

 

Easier for Teachers

Teachers can trade exhausting web searches, failed lab experiments, and passive learning for tools your students will love using. Pivot Interactives helps science teachers engage students and build the science classroom they’ve always envisioned.

 

Engaging for Students

Students manipulate and measure variables, like time, distance, temperature, and more, allowing them to tinker as they conduct their own authentic scientific investigations. When students can freely explore science through science practices, their confidence in problem-solving grows exponentially.    

Over 550 activities from 5th grade through college span physics, biology, chemistry, environmental science, astronomy, and earth & space science, Pivot Interactives covers fundamental topics in science such as Beer’s Law, acids and bases, kinematics, photosynthesis, spectroscopy, thermal conductivity, gene expression, gel electrophoresis, and dozens more.

Problem solved:

Creating active engagement in the science classroom can be time-consuming and difficult. Many science teachers struggle to engage students actively and feel stuck using slides, lectures, and lackluster lab experiments that fall short. Pivot Interactives gives teachers tools so students can explore scientific phenomena and develop their skills in the science practices.

    As a teacher, nothing is more draining than unengaged students. Pivot Interactives allows students to explore scientific phenomena first-hand so teachers can ignite students’ passion for science and their own love for teaching.

Educators can trade exhausting web searches, failed lab experiments, and passive learning for tools students will love using.

Pivot Interactives helps science teachers engage students and build the science classroom they’ve always envisioned.

Create Sticky Learning: Empower students to grasp, love, and understand science in engaging ways.

Pivot Interactives’ easy-to-use platform helps teachers rest easy knowing they have put their class in the best position possible to meet district demands and engage science like never before.
