Cutting-edge Program Incorporates HTML5 Presentations, Online Student Activities, and Performance-based Assessments to Bring the Science Practices Alive

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – March 18, 2014 – TCI today unveiled a preview of its new Bring Science Alive! program. Built from the ground-up to support the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), this new curriculum offers a comprehensive approach to teaching science. Starting today, teachers can sign up for one free lesson and preview any first through fifth grade program, all set to launch in fall 2014.

Rather than solely being a hands-on program or only focusing on technology, Bring Science Alive! is a comprehensive approach to teaching science that combines all elements. The Student Subscription features text, interactive tutorials, notebook prompts, and assessments that support and build off one another to give students a complete understanding of topics and concepts. The Teacher Subscription includes easy-to-implement presentations, clear standards alignment information, step-by-step tutorials for conducting in-class investigations and more.

“Our new science program combines the expertise of our stellar advisory board of top experts in science education with TCI’s nearly 25 year history of helping teachers bring learning alive for students,” said Bert Bower, TCI founder and CEO. “The result is Bring Science Alive!, the most comprehensive NGSS and Common Core aligned science program available today. Bring Science Alive! allows teachers to actively engage students in learning the content and reinvigorates their passion for teaching.”
