Flinn Scientific’s New PAVO Platform Provides Comprehensive Instructional Solution to District-Level Science Programs

More than 10,000 digital resources – including labs, videos, and assessments – available for middle school, high school, and Advanced Placement levels

Batavia, Illinois, December 21, 2021 — To support school district science programs in delivering comprehensive content and customizable labs across science subject areas, Flinn Scientific recently launched the PAVO platform. This all-in-one solution for middle school, high school, and advanced science levels helps educators support digital and hands-on learning, facilitate inquiry-based exploration, and differentiate instruction using labs, embedded safety resources, test prep, formative and summative assessments, and multi-level reporting tools.  

“We wanted to figure out a way to bring all of the rich resources Flinn has under one umbrella to make it easy for educators to offer dynamic, hands-on learning in science classrooms. The PAVO platform brings an unparalleled depth and breadth to science instruction, while focusing on inquiry, investigation, and exploration,” said Michael Lavelle, CEO of Flinn Scientific. “In one platform, PAVO provides all of our digital resources and labs, accessible by grade or subject area, to help educators deeper engage students in hands-on and digital learning.” 

All of PAVO’s content is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards to ensure students are practicing and mastering key concepts in the major science areas, including chemistry, biology, environmental science, physics, physical science, life science, Earth and space science, and STEM. The content includes more than 7,000 customizable lessons, labs, assessments, and safety courses and certifications, as well as 3,200-plus instructional videos, lab videos, and augmented and virtual reality simulations that bring science to life for students.

The flexibility of these resources, as well as the formative insights provided by the assessments, help educators appropriately differentiate their instruction to engage, support, and challenge all students. Educators can find, update, and assign resources and lessons within PAVO according to the unique abilities and objectives of the class and individual students.

“These resources can help teachers flip the classroom, provide extended learning outside of class, and open up lab time for deeper investigation,” added Lavelle.

PAVO was recently recognized for its innovation and ability to transform the teaching and learning process by the 2021 Tech Edvocate Awards. It was chosen as the winner of the Best STEM/STEAM Education App or Tool category in part by a panel of edtech leaders, teachers, administrators, and parents. It was additionally named a Platinum winner of the THE Journal 2021 New Product Awards in the Science Program category.
