Frequently Asked Questions

What is Nano Simbox for K-12?

Nano Simbox is a platform which makes the invisible world of atoms and molecules visible for science learners, connecting what they can’t see to their everyday world, deepening their understanding of how our world is interconnected. Nano Simbox draws on students’ creativity to explore the molecular world and understand abstract concepts taught across school science.

When will Nano Simbox for K-12 be available?

Nano Simbox will be available in schools from September 2018.

What devices will Nano Simbox be available on?

Nano Simbox will be available on iOS, Android and web browser.

How does Nano Simbox fit into science education and curriculum?

We keep progressive pedagogy at the heart of our products, and we understand that technology is incompatible in the classroom if it doesn’t serve its educational purpose. At Interactive Scientific we have devised our 10 Teaching and Learning Principles which underpin our design and content in all of our educational work. Science education is based on understanding the world around us and explaining what we see through scientific models, often based on the invisible, nano world that lies beneath. At the heart of the Nano Simbox is the link between the visible and the invisible, and as such, it is an invaluable resource for teachers and students to gain a greater understanding of science.

How can I use Nano Simbox?

Here are just a few of the ways Nano Simbox can be used:

  • Flipped Learning
  • Using our virtual experiments to allow students to combine their experimental observations with molecular simulations
  • Challenge your students to build a molecule covered in a lesson as a starter or plenary activity
  • Revision
  • In your STEM club
