Tyto Online uses a variety of strategies to meet the goal of "All Standards, All Students" and keep middle schoolers engaged at a time when they are at risk for losing interest in STEM. And the data shows we have equal engagement across boys & girls, as well as white & BIPOC students
We were also selected as "Solvers" by MIT Solve for the Equitable Classrooms challenge in 2021.
See our winning pitch video below:
Students investigate a disease, sickle cell, including developing an understanding of how its protein shape impacts its function and causes the symptoms. They would then look into why the disease has persisted and its link to positive survival rates with malaria, impacting the populations that tend to have sickle cell.
To combat stereotypes about these types of diseases, we look into some similar hereditary disorders, as well!

“Students seemed to relate to the psychological impacts of the storylines. They could relate to the emotional and sociological nuances of the storyline as much as they could the scientific content. Tyto was great for keeping students engaged through distance learning and the content really aligned with his curriculum, so I was pleased to have something that would engage them remotely and also cover the content. I am absolutely going to use it again next year.”
