Designed for educators and enthusiastic learners of any age (though most suitable for middle and high school students), Science Pickle provides various resources (readings, animations, games, and more) for "in-depth, varied, and connectable learning." Activities are "self-paced" and "self-guided," perfect for classroom settings and independent use, especially in an online learning environment. Currently, the site focuses on two concepts. The first concept, Creative Thinking, is divided into three units: Learning, Observing, and Questioning. The second concept, Earth Systems, covers various subtopics, including Energy, Atmosphere, and Precipitation. Each of these topics has learning plans composed of text, graphics, and quizzes that allow users to build (and then test) their skills. For example, the Questioning section begins with an introductory survey, then defines different types of "questioners" (with games to exemplify each), and concludes with a primer on "strategies for questioning." Science Pickle was designed by curriculum developer and former meteorologist John Pickle, who wanted to create a site that brought "self-choice into learning."
