IntoScience offers integrated and interactive activities for students to explore the structures and functions of various cells. In the "Cell Basics" activity, students train as cytologists, and are given the task of investigating four cell types: prokaryotic, plant, animal and fungi. With comprehensive
Melting ice is causing great concern as it results in rising sea levels globally. Climate change (also known as global warming) is suggested as a reason behind the increasing sea levels. The habitats of plants and animals will be affected by sea level rise
With IntoScience, students delve into activities and rich visual interactives to understand the processes which change one state of matter to another. These processes include melting, freezing, evaporation, condensation and sublimation. Vivid simulations illustrate what is happening at a particle level as these changes
Antimatter particles have the opposite properties of ordinary matter particles and are thought to exist mainly around black holes and in cosmic rays in the Universe. Physicists zoom in on antimatter behaviour By Mariette le Roux, Agençe France-Presse (courtesy of Cosmos Magazine : www.cosmosmagazine.com) A new
Chocolate is a compound that usually exists as a solid. You've probably noticed that when you hold chocolate in your hand or try to eat it on a warm day, it gets soft and melts! The high air temperature on a hot day, or
With IntoScience, students investigate and explore the common states of matter: gas, solid and liquid. Interactive tasks require students to analyse and discuss the different states of matter under various conditions. Students review the effects of changes in pressure and temperature on different

Cells are the smallest unit of life that are classified as living things. Humans are made up of trillions of cells, which are essentially animal cells. Have a read of the following article (courtesy of our resident IntoScientist and passionate educator, Dave Canavan) which outlines
In a food chain, energy is passed from one link to another. When a herbivore eats, only a fraction of the energy becomes new body mass; the rest of the energy is lost as waste or used up by the herbivore itself to carry
Indeed we can’t always see forces, but we can see the effects of forces everyday and how they impact on the world around us. The famous Newton’s first law of motion tells us that: “An object at rest stays at rest and an object

The fossilised remains of an ancient human-like species have been found in southwest China. Do these Red Deer Cave people
Teachers, have you ever tried out a new teaching tool that your students were highly interested in and excited about, but then found yourself wondering “how could I teach with this?” You definitely wouldn't be alone on this one! Our IntoScience platform is revolutionising the teaching
IntoScience uses “Taxonomic Ranks” to inspire teachers and students through engaging activities and rich visuals.
Taxonomic ranks are a way to classify living things and understand how closely they are related. The ranks are organised in a hierarchy, starting with the widest possible grouping or rank and then dividing this into smaller groupings or ranks. With IntoScience, students can
Kepler spots most Earth-like planets yet by Kerry Sheridan , Agençe France-Presse (courtesy of Cosmos Magazine : www.cosmosmagazine.com) WASHINGTON: Using a powerful NASA space telescope to scan the skies for planets like ours where life might exist, astronomers said they have found the most Earth-like candidates yet.
