Science moves from being a study of broad concepts to in depth understanding of atoms, elements, and principles when students enter high school. While science is the most interesting subject when you look back, students actively learning these concepts for the first time have a different opinion. Thankfully, there is a rich source of online learning resource which ‘dissect’ concepts into ‘quantum packets’ of easily ‘digestible’ information.
C2 Education’s List of Online Science Study Resources:
Online Science Study Resource 1: NOVA Labs
Primary focus of this website is on sciences. The content is well narrated scientific principles explained through videos. At the end of each lesson, there is an interactive task. Nova Labs defines sophistication and maintains high quality of content. Nova labs is so impressive that it is often used by teachers as a supplementary teaching aid.
