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. 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. Your child's username is: email@example.com (For example, mine would be, firstname.lastname@example.org). Their password is mbusd.
