Texas selects digital science resource

The Texas State Board of Education has selected the Discovery Education Science Techbook as an approved resource for use in Texas middle schools.

Built to be aligned to TEKS, Texas’ science education standards, and CSCOPE, Texas’ curriculum management system, the Science Techbook's inquiry-based approach offers features such as an interactive glossary, animations, videos and photos, clips from series including PLANET EARTH, LIFE and MYTHBUSTERS, and a real-time assessment component. The Techbook is dynamic and updated in real time, providing teachers the opportunity to incorporate up-to-date scientific issues into their curriculum, such as the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
