Empowering students to be authentic science problem solvers.

With Tyto Online, students directly engage in science as they learn. Solve a food shortage using genetics, or figure out that animals are sick from microplastics by examining the ecosystem and collecting data.

Built for the NGSS.

Applications open for NGSS MicroGrant through June 1st. Learn more & apply.

Directly engage students with science phenomena.

Don't settle for just showing videos to students; let them observe, experiment with, and run experiments to collect evidence and observe the phenomena.

Use teacher dashboard to plan & assign content.

Our teacher dashboard examines standards, provides supplemental materials, and lets teachers plan and assign content to align with class lessons.

Personalize based on assessment data.

We collect assessment data based on natural student gameplay: making flowcharts, building arguments, etc. We even highlight specific areas students are struggling to power teacher differentiation.

Ongoing professional development & support.

We have ongoing professional development available. We have an in-person session available, and we set up an ongoing online course and community to provide a stellar level of support.

How our Storylines work

Tyto Online is built for the NGSS, with built-in best practices like students making sense of anchoring phenomena, learning through storylines, and engaging in three-dimensional learning. Students are participating in inquiry and solving authentic problems in every activity. We help teachers incorporate the new engineering standards, since many of these Storylines include them, having students make recommendations to solve problems and evaluate competing design solutions.

1
Intrigue with phenomena

Intrigue with phenomena

Students engage with inquiry by starting with scientific phenomena that they need to figure out, or problems they need to solve.

2
Collect evidence

Collect evidence

Students collect evidence and conduct experiments to figure out phenomena or solve a problem.

3
Build an argument or propose a solution

Build an argument or propose a solution

Throughout storylines, students are asked to build an argument from their evidence, or choose an optimized design solution to solve a problem.
