Students analyze real events, not word problems

Educators have used word problems for generations because that’s all that was available. But interactive video offers a new way for students to observe and analyze real events. Pivot Interactives allows student to learn science concepts from events without the practical restrictions of the classroom.

Students Can Conduct investigations

Pivot Interactives unique interface let’s students navigate matrices of videos, changing parameters such as the mass of an object, the concentration of a solution, or the wavelength of light. Students can measure how these changes affect the outcome of a scenario. This allows students to conduct authentic scientific investigation, with the accessibility provided by an online platform.
