The Next Generation Science Standards are complex and hard to unpack. Built on a digital platform, enhanced by print, and brought to life in hands-on kits, STEMscopes NGSS is an all-in-one STEM solution for the NGSS. Developed over three years, STEMscopes NGSS is rooted in the 5E model, a research-based instructional method that effectively connext the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards: Disciplinary Core Ideas, Science and Engineering practices, and Crosscutting Connections.
STEMscopes NGSS places problem-based learning, engineering challenges, scientific investigations, math and literacy connections, and culminating claim-evidence-reasoning assessments at your fingertips—now it is finally possible to help students understand the NGSS as they were designed.
Available in Spanish for K-5.
STEMscopes NGSS drives student inquiry and a passion for STEM. Help your students understand the nuances and complexity of the NGSS through scientific investigations, engineering challenges, content connection videos, claim-evidence-reasoning assessments, and more.
Spend less time planning and more time focusing on helping struggling and advanced learners, through a variety of learning resources. STEMscopes NGSS saves schools and districts money, provides free PD, and constantly evolves based on teachers’ feedback.
Built over three years, STEMscopes NGSS meets all ETSs, CCCs, DCIs, and Scientific and Engineering Practices across all Strands, while considering the language and structure of the PEs to understand the bounds and limitations of what student outputs should be.
Even the best designed curriculum cannot be successful without professional development. Get on-boarded quickly with STEMcoach Launch Training.
When adopting a new instructional program for teachers and student success in science, implementation support is paramount for using the program to its best advantage. By modeling hands-on, inquiry-based strategies while using STEMscopes, teachers will develop an understanding of the STEMscopes structure, where resources are located, how to glide through assessments, and how to provide interactive and engaging technology-focused lessons.
STEMscopes pedagogy has its roots in Bybee’s 5E model, Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences, and the back-flipped classroom wherein students learn by doing and experiencing rather than passively observing.
STEMscopes NGSS is built on Three-Dimensional Learning—crosscutting connections, discipline-specific core ideas, and science and engineering practices. All three dimensions are seamlessly woven together in lesson activities so that students come to understand the Next Generation Science Standards not as discreet facts and skills, but as the process of applying science in our lives. This type of learning means that students can interact with science as scientists themselves, combining personal interests, a spirit of inquiry, and the overarching concepts that govern how we understand the natural world.
