Professional Development

How STEMscopes is Built

Rooted in the Scientifically Proven 5E Model PLUS Intervention and Acceleration.

STEMscopes pedagogy has its roots in Bybee’s 5E model, Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences, and the back-flipped classroom wherein students learn by doing and experiencing rather than passively observing.
