Active learning begins with curiosity! The Curious George STEM Collection is a great way to help young children understand science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts, such as measuring, building, and simple machines.
The mission of Understanding Science is to provide a fun, accessible, and free resource that accurately communicates what science is and how it really works.
Real estate is a complex field that requires skills in math, science, English, social studies and home economics.
The Universal Design in Science Education project develops technology-rich science curriculum modules for grades 3-6. The goal of this project is to use UDL principles to create practical science materials for students and teachers in inclusive classrooms. The project will create inquiry modules around the theme of energy. They will address questions such as Why are there clouds? and What do plants eat? Probes will support lab investigations and computational models will allow students to explore virtual environments.
BrainPOP offers cross-curricular animated movies, learning games, interactive quizzes, primary source activities, and a breadth of additional resources for students.
Developed by the University of Berkeley with multiple partners through NSF funding, Project WISE used knowledge integrated learning environments research to develop learning modules or units.
