To provide preK-12 schools with a comprehensive, online science curriculum that meets all NGSS and state science standards, Accelerate Learning today announces the national release of STEMscopes™ NGSS and STEMscopes™ State Edition for K-12 students, and STEMscopes™ Early Explorer for preschool students.
Developed in conjunction with Rice University, STEMscopes can be used as a core science curriculum, or as a supplementary or enrichment resource. The online, inquiry-based curriculum provides digital teacher and student materials and assessments, as well as printed materials and ready-made science kits for each grade level.
STEMscopes unwraps the NGSS and state science standards into digestible modules for students. Using a drag-and-drop system, teachers can select from up to 35 resources per standard to develop their lessons. Within each unit, teachers can review student expectations, key concepts and fundamental questions, and access materials lists and assessments.
For students, STEMscopes provides activities such as scientific investigations, problem-based learning activities, career and content connection videos, games, and interdisciplinary connections.
