VCISE is a collection of interactive, online simulations designed to enhance
traditional middle and high school science curricula by providing supplements
to experimental laboratory or field work.
The inquiry-based activities emphasize the scientific method. Students make
observations, propose hypotheses, design experiments, collect and analyze data
generated by the simulation, and synthesize and communicate results through an
electronic notebook and an online report.
The activities include an online assessment quiz with randomized interactive
questions. Editable online templates for constructing a lab report and a
grading rubric are available for the teacher, as well as access to their class
or individual student assessment profiles.
Standards See how each activity aligns
to the U.S. National Science Education Standards and your state's standards.
