The science curriculum units developed by the Center for Gifted Education contain simulations of real-world problems that face today's society. The units are geared toward different grade-level clusters, yet they can be adapted for use at all levels K–8. The goals of each unit are to allow students to analyze several real-world problems, understand the concept of systems, and design and conduct scientific experiments. These units also allow students to explore various scientific topics and identify meaningful scientific problems for investigation. Through these units, students experience the work of real science in applying data-handling skills, analyzing information, evaluating results, and learning to communicate their understanding to others.
For information about the science curriculum, please contact [[lcbland, Dr. Lori Bland]].
Please contact [[aycarpenter, Dr. Ashley Carpenter]] about training related to the science units. The training modules have been revised to include information about correlations to the Next Generation Science Standards. The training offered by the Center for Gifted Education can be adapted to meet the specific needs of your district.
