The New York Academy of Sciences is proud to announce the release of its new Innovation Curriculum, a free resource to engage middle and high school students in authentic project-based learning!
Aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, this flexible curriculum teaches students how to solve challenges facing their communities—and communities around the world—by applying principles of scientific research and design thinking. Along the way, students will build STEM knowledge and develop 21st-century skills like critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
Use the materials to support students competing in the Future of Buildings and Cities Challenge starting October 19, or run a challenge of your own!
