(PRWEB) March 21, 2006 -- Paracomp, Inc. announces a new capability to include both traditional wet lab experiments and virtual experiments in the same Smart ScienceŽ inquiry-based lab. A Smart ScienceŽ lab catapults a typical traditional wet lab from replication of lectured answers into scientific inquiry to determine answers, an age-old research-backed method that improves learning.
The Smart ScienceŽ learning system, www.smartscience.net,
offers the only hands-on real virtual labs. Students pick and interact with real experiments and collect their own data.
With the new hybrid lab feature, students collect data from experiments in a traditional wet lab and enter their data into a Smart ScienceŽ virtual lab. Students also collect data from Smart ScienceŽ real virtual experiments and compare the results from both types of experiments. All data and lab reports are saved electronically and provide documentation that the experiments were performed.
Guided scientific inquiry is built into all Smart ScienceŽ labs, teaching students to think like scientists. This approach to teaching is rooted in the work of scientists and educators spanning over 100 years1, yet most attempts to use it over this long period have failed2. The Smart ScienceŽ patented system was designed and built to use modern technology to cure this failure. The new hybrid lab feature extends the benefits of guided scientific inquiry to those doing wet lab experiments.
The Smart ScienceŽ learning system combines hybrid labs, real virtual labs, wet labs, basic knowledge presentations and exercises, assessments, practice exams and other course activities to create hands-on electronic course books delivered over the Internet. The student's time stamped responses are recorded in the course book's database and presented in secure reports. Course books are currently being used by students from 6th grade through college.
Paracomp, Inc. is the creator, owner and sole supplier of the Smart ScienceŽ learning system and is dedicated to delivering Smart ScienceŽ services at very low cost, making the Smart ScienceŽ learning system an excellent means for providing quality education
