BBC Science Simulations 2
Grade 1-3

BBC Science Simulations 2 contains seven engaging virtual science scenarios. Student�s ages 7-9 years are provided with the opportunity to select variables, control time and to view the results of their experiments as animations and/or dynamically generated tables, graphs and diagrams. Several of the simulations also have a Multi-sim feature that allows pupils to make direct comparisons by running two versions of a simulation in parallel. Seven interactive simulations are provided each with dynamically generated tables, graphs and diagrams. �Questions� mode provides a series of focused questions on the simulation at hand. It stimulates new ideas and intuitive ways to manipulate variables to observe different results. Click on the camera icon to print, copy or save a screen shot of the experiment at each day - then later retrieve the picture to place in a report! Also printable versions of all questions are available on the CD. BBC Science Simulations 2 has engaging graphics and simple intuitive controls.

Teacher controls allow you to configure the access to specific simulations, questions, graph, multi simulation mode, or table view on or off. IWB settings tab allows Teachers to switch the main toolbars from the left of the screen to the right for ease of use when presenting with a whiteboard. Brief overview's of each simulation is available by selecting the information tab, or view student records both found in teacher controls! Perfect for whiteboards!

Simulations include:

Exercise and Health - Select the exercise type, fitness level and duration of exercise. Observe how these affect a person's breathing rate and energy level as they exercise.

Plants and Growth - Observe how a plant responds to different levels of water, light and warmth as it grows for 30 days.

Food Chains - Vary the amounts of pondweed, mayfly, larvae, minnow and perch in a pond habitat over a period of 30 weeks. Investigate how organisms depend on each other for survival.

Thermal Insulation - Identify which material is the most effective thermal insulator by wrapping a container in different materials and then watching as the water inside the container cools.

Electrical Circuits and Conductors - Explore making electrical circuits with a range of components. Use a circuit to test the conductivity of a variety of everyday materials.

Forces and Friction - Investigate how different forces and weights affect how afar an object travels when pushed across various surfaces. Identify factors that increase friction.

Sun and Shadows - Select one of three objects and explore how the length of a shadow cast by the sun changes over the course of a day. Investigate how the time of year affects the length of the shadows.

Minimum System Requirements
Win 95+, Pentium 233 MHz, 64 MB RAM, sound card
