New resources for science teachers are now available from the GotScience Teachers STEM Education Resource Center! Two e-book science teaching discussion guides and activities are now available for free download from GotScience.org.
You will be prompted to enter a little information and select free teaching materials for either middle school or high school.
Did You Know?
Ensuring that all students have access to high-quality learning opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is a priority of the US Department of Education. In 2011, however, only 35 percent of middle school students and only 26 percent of 12th grade students performed at or above grade level in science. Science Connected is meeting this challenge by creating supplemental learning materials for middle school and high school classrooms and offering them free to teachers.

More About the Project
GotScience.org is a science magazine published by Science Connected, a nonprofit dedicated to increasing public understanding of science. GotScience.org translates complex research findings into accessible insights on science, nature, and technology.
A rapidly growing number of teachers are using GotScience.org articles and photos in their classrooms. At the request of those teachers, we have produced a set of educational materials to accompany our articles in classrooms. Topics covered include animal life, archaeology, astronomy, biology, engineering, environment, oceanography, physics, science and art, technology, and general science concepts.
Why Support Science Education for All?
If we can’t think for ourselves, if we’re unwilling to question authority, then we’re just putty in the hands of those in power. But if the citizens are educated and form their own opinions, then those in power work for us. In every country, we should be teaching our children the scientific method and the reasons for a Bill of Rights.
—Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark
[Science] is more than a school subject, or the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world, a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world, and to share this accumulated knowledge.
—President Barack Obama, White House Science Fair, March 23, 2015
Education at all levels in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) develops, preserves, and disseminates knowledge and skills that convey personal, economic, and social benefits.
