HOUSTON — Nov. 28, 2017 — The STEMscopes™ PreK-12 science curriculum from Accelerate Learning has been named a winner in the Best Upgraded Product category of Tech & Learningmagazine’s 2017 Awards of Excellence program. Built from the ground up to help students meet today’s state standards and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), STEMscopes provides teacher and student digital resources, supplemental print materials, and hands-on exploration kits that build student engagement and excitement for learning science.
Now in its 35th year, the Tech & Learning Awards of Excellence honor innovative applications and technology products that break new ground and help support K-12 educators and students in and out of the classroom. Entries are considered for one of two categories – New Products or Upgraded Products – and are judged by a panel of educators who review, handle, and score each one individually. Detailed descriptions of the winners will be published in the publication’s December/January issue.
“To be recognized by such an esteemed program and panel of judges is validation that STEMscopes is meeting the needs of preK-12 schools to engage and prepare students to pursue higher learning and careers in STEM,” said Dr. Vernon Johnson, CEO for Accelerate Learning. “We attribute this success to our close collaboration with teachers to build and continually improve a digital science curriculum tool that meets their daily instructional and assessment needs.”
Released earlier this year, the latest edition of STEMscopes includes the addition of highly interactive games designed in partnership with Filament Games, as well as improvements for students who need special accommodations to support learning. The new STEMscopes release also includes notable enhancements to teacher tools, including the STEMscopes Assessment Bank tool and Master Assignment View.
