Featured Site Friday – Nitty Gritty Science
We are excited to share this week’s featured website – Nitty Gritty Science!
FreshySites recently had an opportunity to work on a very exciting project. Nitty Gritty Science specializes in science interactive notebooks which can be used by educators in the classroom and incorporated into science curriculum. These engaging, high-quality science resources cater to students’ various learning styles and meet the standards of rigor and engagement expected in science curriculum; but most importantly, they save teachers time so they can get back to doing what they do best – TEACHING!
Dr. Erica Colón, Nitty Gritty Science founder and curriculum designer, sought out FreshySites with a goal of building and designing a website that would become the go-to site for Science Interactive Notebooks. She started Nitty Gritty Science as a way to share her passion of teaching, and FreshySites strove to create a site that would not only mirror this passion, but also share it with others.
FS is incredibly pleased with the final results and ecstatic to hear that Dr. Colón feels the same:
“I found FreshySites after I had a website design project go terribly wrong – my first design was nothing that I imagined, nor what the first company promised to deliver. So, now being leery of website designers, I walked into Vincent’s office at FreshySites with my best ‘I mean business’ attitude, a million questions, my design ideas and my family in tow!
Well, guess what, Vincent answered every question, listened to all my ideas, showed me ideas he had, put up with my kids and the final product…an AWESOME website that far exceeded my expectations!! Vincent and his team takes care of all the details, they use relevant designs, images and website elements. I was in constant communication with team members, and all questions and concerns were addressed throughout the process”
Not only is the site modern and “eye candy for an educator” but it also helps to promote the benefits and uses of incorporating interactive notebooks into course curriculum. The NGS online shop presents Dr. Colón’s products in a way that is sure to get the attention of teachers and science curriculum coordinators. Once their interest is peaked, site visitors will venture into a pleasant online shopping experience. The online shop hosts a variety of filter capabilities, allowing shoppers to search by subject area and product type as well as sort by various attributes.
Upon finding what they are looking for, educators can also learn more about the product by viewing sample pages and sections, reading extensive descriptions, and browsing through product specific reviews. Due to the digital nature of the products, customers receive instant gratification by downloading their purchase immediately after checkout. After working with these resources first-hand, educators are certain to come back for more and will be pleased to see that they can stay in-the-loop on curriculum updates and downloadable offers by signing up for the NGS newsletter and officially joining Team NGS!
