WHAT OUR USERS ARE SAYING ABOUT CORESCIENCES… ×
"With the restrictions imposed by COVID-19 CoreSciences has been an excellent resource for students and staff. Students are able to engage with the Required Practicals, and practise the knowledge and skills required for their future examinations.
Originally purchased as a resource for our online learners, CoreSciences is also being effectively implemented with our in-school learners to consolidate and review the practicals at their own pace.
Thank you CoreSciences!"
"As Head of Science at The Bridge Education Centre I was asked to investigate online learning strategies to help meet the challenges presented by the Covid pandemic and for longer term teaching strategies that would support the delivery of investigative work with challenging and poorly motivated students. CoreSciences has proven to be successful in both regards, allowing independent work for students at home on core science practicals, whilst at the same time providing stimulating in class collaboration on the main interactive board."
"Just a quick note to say a huge thank-you for your excellent online teaching tool. I've found it invaluable over the last month. My students really love using it. Such a great idea!"
"CoreSciences covers all required practicals for GCSE. Students have shown great interest in the ability to click and drag equipment, getting instant feedback from the supportive online tutor if mistakes are made. The capacity to get results that support the theory rather than get frustrated by poor results generated by limited equipment is wonderful. In addition the students have been motivated by the challenge of reducing errors by repeating the practical, competing with each other to do so."
"CoreSciences offers an accessible alternative to classroom practicals. The instructions are detailed and fully supported with helpful hints, while the worksheets and exam questions offer a range of assessment opportunities. Students comment that they feel they have learnt almost as well as working in the lab, while having the opportunity to revisit experiments easily or watch detailed tutorials. The new class analytics have improved the user experience for both students and staff, and the CoreSciences support team are always on hand to help and fully understand the environment in which teachers work."
Thank you CoreSciences – you are making this difficult year a little bit easier."
"The CoreSciences simulations are very well presented, colourful and representative of the actual demands of the GCSE practicals. Such relevance helps when it comes to the curriculum requirements and GCSE examination questions. I can recommend the software without reservation and given the students feedback can see this as a long term investment in their future success."
"I started using CoreSciences with my students, it's an awesome tool to enhance the teaching and scientific process by helping them to get a rich experience with experiments that they were unable to do remotely. We love the setup, the learning checks, ease of experimenting for all subjects. Thank you CoreSciences for this great package."
"My students have told me that they really enjoy using CoreSciences. They also comment on how quick and easy it is to learn what they need to know about each required practical. It's such a useful learning tool that it's become an essential part of my students' learning experience. I can't imagine replacing it with anything else."
"The CoreSciences platform provides a great alternative to the face-to-face teaching/learning of science. With a mixture of simulated experiments, presentations, tests and activities, it provides a diverse learning environment for science students to explore concepts and test their knowledge. The platform also enables teachers to fulfil their roles easier as facilitators of learning."
"As a teacher of science in a SEN school using the online practical facility has been useful in getting my pupils to have a go at practicals before carrying them out physically in the laboratory. I can check pupils’ performance and progress as well as identify areas they find challenging through the reports sent to me via email. Pupils have the opportunity to re-do practical sessions to correct themselves which they find amazing!"
Fully immersive interactive experiment simulations for all required practicals.
Advanced dual mode question database for revision and testing.
Detailed analytics of class and student performance with intervention and feedback.>
Challenging but fun games and activities for more engaged learning.
The required practicals element in the new curriculum is guaranteed to constitute a minimum of 15% and sometimes as much as 35% of total marks in every single exam paper. This is equivalent to at least 1 or 2 grade boundaries. Our unique required practical lab simulations enhance familiarity with practical work and working scientifically and is a valuable asset to all student groups including SEND or Excluded pupils who may not have ready access to real lab experiments. CoreSciences offers access to all required practicals for Biology, Chemistry and Physics where students can carry out unlimited experiments making it easy for pupils to understand and learn.
CoreSciences analyses student progress through scoring of practicals and multiple choice questions. Teachers are able to reclaim time when evaluating performance through a sophisticated analysis system that determines strengths and weaknesses of topics at class and student level.
Auto-generated progress reports and drill-down performance data are available to monitor student progress and assist with setting performance targets for classes and students. Performance analysis allows for bespoke student interventions, whilst real time activity notifications engages parents directly in their students' ongoing progress.
There are also a number of games and activities available for pupils to complete if there is extra time in class, or to give as homework. They’re fun activities that help to consolidate their learning.
