Flinn Scientific, a flagship provider of science lab materials and safety and STEM solutions for the K-16 education market, has added new digital labs to the award-winning Science2Go. This includes new lab series for high school chemistry and biology, which are being offered at an introductory price for schools and districts through the end of the year, as well as new individual labs for high school physics, middle school physical science, and middle school life science.

“Science2Go provides a safe and engaging way to teach middle and high school students important concepts across a range of science disciplines,” said Mike Lavelle, CEO of Flinn Scientific. “These new labs are part of our effort to continually enhance our program to further support teachers with their instruction and to provide students with more enriching lab experiences, regardless if they are in-person or learning remotely.”

The new lab series for both high school biology and high school chemistry – Biology Lab Series 2 and Chemistry Lab Series 2, respectively – are delivered using a new “Predict & Explain” format in which students predict results and then see how closely those results match the lab outcomes. Each new series covers new topics including energy from food,, plant growth, and ocean acidification for biology to gases, structure-property relationship, and equilibrium for chemistry.

These new series join Science2Go’s existing biology and chemistry lab series – Biology Lab Series 1 and Chemistry Lab Series 1, respectively. As part of a special introductory offer, schools and districts that purchase Biology Lab Series 1 or Chemistry Lab Series 1 by December 31, 2020 will receive the corresponding new lab series for free.

New Coefficient of Friction and Buoyancy labs have been added to the high school physics series; The Structure-Property Relationship and Gases labs have been added to the middle school physical science series; and the Nutrition lab has been added to the middle school life science series. All of these labs are available as part of the existing corresponding lab series.

Science2Go is a digital learning solution that offers a new approach to laboratory education for middle school and high school students. It allows students to engage in science practices in any learning environment without access to supplies or equipment thus making it an ideal solution for remote, hybrid, and in-classroom learning.

For in-person learning, Science2Go can be used as a supplemental, pre-lab activity for students to complete in preparation for in-person labs or it can be used as a standalone activity to provide students with a lab experience even when there are no hands-on materials available because of social distancing measures. For hybrid learning, it can be used on days where students are at home so they can prepare for in-person labs on the days they return to school.

Science2Go was recently named the platinum winner in the Science Program category of THE Journal’s 2020 New Product Awards. The awards program honors the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are considered to be particularly noteworthy in the transformation of education technology.
