ISB Education is continually working to identify effective resources to support student learning. In response to the coronavirus outbreak and the closure of K-12 schools across the nation, we recognize that many schools and families are looking for resources to meet the needs of students.
To support you in these efforts, ISB is one of many organizations offering STEM learning resources for free. You have arrived at our resources landing page.
WANTED: High School Science and STEM Teachers
You are invited to participate in our ISB Education workshop titled “Using STEAM to Investigate the Invisible World: Implementing Two Climate Science Modules.” Teachers can earn 24 STEM clock hours while learning to use engaging activities with students in a distance learning format. Stipends are available. These free online supplementary units feature NGSS 3-Dimensions, project-based learning (PBL) approach, and more.
I Notice… I Wonder…
Students of any age can engage in conversations about the phenomena in their world. Pick any phenomenon or “thing” about the natural or designed world, such as daffodils blooming before tulips, the inner workings of a computer, or the way water flows through a local park. What do you notice about that phenomenon? What do you wonder?
Then dive in deeper with questions. (For example, “What causes the patterns you observe?” or “What kinds of energy are involved in this system?” ) Questions like these can help you explore the cross-cutting concepts of science. When you reach a new understanding, consider showcasing your learning by creating an art piece. Or present your learning to a family member or friend via phone.
