PROJECT-BASED LEARNING

Students are motivated to learn in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction, serve to organize meaningful learning, and promote the excitement and joy of learning.

ACTIVE LEARNING

Students actively engage in science and engineering practices and mathematical reasoning to deepen their understanding of core ideas. Students work together to define problems, conduct investigations, make models, use computational thinking, write explanations, and discuss and present findings.

TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED LEARNING

Our 21st century technology is designed to support a seamless implementation of our curricula. It includes all hands-on equipment needed for the classroom and top-of-the-line electronic books, probes, and mobile devices.

TOTAL SUPPORT

We are committed to providing comprehensive support services for districts implementing our programs. From face-to-face workshops to our ever-expanding Cyber professional-development resources, we can tailor-fit a complete solution to your needs.

Introduction

Intergrated Coordinated Science for the 21st Century is an innovative core curricula assembled from four proven inquiry-based programs: Active Physics, Active Chemistry, Active Biology, and EarthComm. Students are introduced to these four major sciences and become acquainted with the similarities and differences among the disciplines.

Integrated Coordinated Science students are motivated to learn.
Students are motivated to learn science in the context of highly engaging and authentic “real-world” projects that guide instruction and serve to organize their learning. Research shows that the project-based approach promotes excitement and meaningful learning for ALL students.

Integrated Coordinated Science students develop communication and collaboration skills.
In Integrated Coordinated Science, students develop a community of practice and a culture of collaboration and communication. The presentations of the Chapter Challenges provide students with opportunities 
to engage in scientific arguments using evidence and science knowledge, and promote a deeper understanding through public practice.

Integrated Coordinated Science students learn like scientists.
The science and engineering practices, as described in A Framework for K-12 Science Education, are integrated throughout the curriculum. Students engage with complex situations and collaborate on what they need to learn in order to manage the situation effectively.
