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.
As schools look for innovative ways to bring in STEM learning, here’s a possible road map for how to galvanize a school community.
Seven Magic Mountains, a two-year public art installation, is located approximately 10 miles south of the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and St. Rose Parkway in Henderson, Nevada. Discover how to apply themes present in Seven Magic Mountains to various disciplines including common science core standards.
Reprinted from Education Week By Anne Jolly STEM is more than just a grouping of subject areas. It is a movement to develop the deep mathematical and scientific underpinnings students need to be competitive in the 21st-century workforce.
Nevada Mathematics Project is a collaborative statewide mathematics initiative to improve math and science instruction and student achievement in Nevada. We are currently supporting over 140 teachers from the state of Nevada to improve math instruction and develop math and science leaders this year. We supported over 120 teachers last year and 106 the previous years. Over the past three years this project has directly impacting over approximately over 12,600 nevada students!.

Whyville is a site where millions of registered "citizens" come from all over to learn, create, and have fun together. Whyville is their world. Whyville has places to go, things to do, and of course, people to see. Whyville has its own newspaper, its own Senators, its own beach, museum, City Hall and town square, its own suburbia, and even its own economy - citizens earn "clams" by playing educational games. And much, much, much more!
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. Teachers can establish a class and provide access to their students. The system records student comments, work, evidence and observations and provides a report back to the teacher. There are around 50 units for teacher access.
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.
