SciCo is a new and experimental way to teach Science Concepts. SciCo uses active participation in a game-like environment to present problems using text, lab activities and videos. As a virtual employee of Science Corporation (SciCo), you are presented with a series of problems; as you solve the problems you earn money (virtual) and learn science concepts. Feedback is instant and topics can be repeated as often as needed to gain mastery.
As a teaching program Using SciCo teaches you how to use SciCo and explains many of the concepts behind this new teaching experience. Versions are available for Mac and PC users and you can test them to see if they work on your system. I have been able to test the Mac version on several computers but have not been able to test the PC version. If a version works on your computer, future SciCo topics should work as well.
