Mimio introduces MimioScience™ interactive lessons for students in grades 3-8. The lessons are aligned to the final version of the recently released Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Each MimioScience unit includes information on how that particular unit aligns with the NGSS. The software has 75 units that provide more than 225 lessons, which cover physical science, Earth and space science, engineering, life science and science processes.
MimioScience lessons’ grade-appropriate activities support the NGSS objective of identifying what students can do, not just how many memorized facts they can recount. Each activity ties particular science content or principles to a science practice, and the effectiveness of all activities has been tested by both students and teachers.
Every MimioScience lesson works on Mimio’s interactive whiteboards, the MimioTeach™ and MimioBoard™ devices as well as on interactive whiteboards from other vendors.
The price of the MimioScience interactive lessons is $1,299 per school per year. Schools that buy the software now will get two academic years (2013-2015) of use for the price of one year’s purchase. Schools will also have access to MimioStudio™ software during the same academic years.
