Pivot Interactives for Biology


Pivot Interactives is a powerful online supplement to hands-on biology experiments, enabling students to vary experimental parameters one at a time to view results from a set of many videos of the same experiment. This robust video library gives your students the opportunity to observe and study hard‑to‑replicate experiments and phenomena no matter where they are.

Why Use Pivot Interactives

Pivot Interactives gives your biology students the opportunity to observe and study hard‑to‑replicate phenomena. In the absence of in‑person experimentation, students get the opportunity to interact with experiments virtually. Students make measurements and analyze their data directly within the Pivot Interactives online environment, making it perfect for remote learning.

Free Trial for Educators
