BrainPOP, a producer of animated educational movies for K-12, is introducing 20 new science movies during the months of March, April, and May. The new movies will extend the offering of BrainPOP's science base, focusing on the environment, heredity, and general biology. In addition, the company recently announced the launch of a new Spanish language site, BrainPOP en Español.
BrainPOP's narrated science animations will bring kids face to face with neurons, water pollution, respiration, and ions, among other topics. The company is working to improve the science knowledge base of students, according to the announcement, as they will be tested beginning in 2007 under the No Child Left Behind Act. By presenting scientific fact in a format that is fun and engaging, BrainPOP movies are designed to entertain as they educate. Activities and a ten-question interactive quiz accompany each movie to reinforce knowledge. See http://www.brainpop.com/science for a full list of science topics.
BrainPOP en Español
This new site uses BrainPOP's format to present content in science, math, social studies, language arts, health and technology, in Spanish.
By offering both English and Spanish versions of the content, BrainPOP hopes to be an integral learning tool for Spanish-speaking students, not only in the U.S. but also in South America and Spain. BrainPOP en Español provides 12-month subscriptions for schools starting at $100. For more information on subscriptions and pricing, please visit http://www.brainpopes.com.
