Overview


Middle school is a time when teachers can be true advocates for science and STEM careers. The Elevate Science Middle Grades program puts exploration at the heart of science. Scientific inquiry encourages investigation, collaboration, and creativity. The blended print and digital curriculum applies scientific and engineering practices in problem-based scenarios. Students focus on analysis, critical thinking, and designing solutions as they explore real-world topics and everyday phenomena.

Elevate Science deepens students' conceptual understanding of science and prepares them for high school and beyond. It's available as an Integrated Middle School Science Curriculum or in domain specific Life, Earth, and Physical Science courses. Either sequence promises toelevate thinking, learning, and teaching by taking science to the next level.
