Curriculum Features


Our Approach: 5E+IA

We built our entire curriculum around the research-based 5E lesson model, then added our own components (Intervention and Acceleration) to ensure ample support for every student.


Digital, Flexible, Blended, Plus High‑Quality Professional Development

Get the most out of STEMscopes by pairing our digital curriculum with print materials and hands-on kits, then enhance your STEM instruction with help from our PD experts.


Hands‑On Science With Engaging, Real‑World Learning

Students learn by doing, and that’s exactly what we set out to achieve with our hands-on kits. Individually packed materials make for quick and easy setup, while the interactive lessons highlight real-world scenarios extending well beyond the classroom.

What Teachers are Saying

“STEMscopes is great. Until we began using STEMscopes, students didn’t understand that science is everywhere. In kindergarten through fourth grade, they thought science was a book. They didn’t see science as being connected to the real world, so they thought that when they left school they’d never use it again. Now they realize science is everyday life.” Karen Silensky, Fifth Grade Teacher Horizon Elementary, Broward County Public Schools, Florida

“STEMscopes is a major motivator for our students. It helps them grasp concepts, build their critical thinking skills, and connect science to real-world situations." Robin Butcher, Fifth Grade Teacher Horizon Elementary, Broward County Public Schools, Florida

“Because we’ve been using STEMscopes for a few years now, our students are better prepared in science at each subsequent grade level. Our middle school teachers say that students are arriving with a stronger foundation in science than they did a few years ago. They also have a better understanding of what’s expected of them, which is moving the learning process forward much quicker.” Don E. Cowart II, Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Coventry Public Schools, Rhode Island

"Being a first-year teacher, I love having everything you need at the access of your computer to complete a lesson plan. From vocabulary, to video with worksheets in not only English, but also in Spanish, as well as extended activities. I love having the hands-on components that include a supply list as well as a quick how-to video on those hands on activities." Amber Moenning, Teacher Crockett Elementary, Wichita Falls ISD, Texas

"STEMscopes has benefited my students and me tremendously. Its practice has encouraged my students to further investigate into the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics as a whole. Its curriculum and experiments/activities are readily accessible, easy to use, and educationally comprehensive. I couldn’t be happier with STEMscopes!" Elizabeth Dennis, Fifth Grade Teacher Centro Mater East II, Miami Dade County, Florida

"STEMscopes allows me to focus on students doing science, not just reading about science. The annual student subscription is reasonable and suggests materials that are inexpensive and easy to find, making hands-on science affordable for a small school with a limited science budget." Angelin Petit, Middle School Science Teacher Sacred Heart Catholic School, Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis, Minnesota

"When a new curriculum gets adopted, teachers worry that they’ll need a lot of professional development and that they’ll have to spend hours planning to implement it. They didn’t do that with STEMscopes. They jumped in really quickly. STEMscopes is very intuitive and simple to use." Cyndi Ganfield, Principal Aumsville Elementary, Cascade School District, Oregon

"The vertical alignment in STEMscopes has been a big benefit. It standardized science so everyone is now speaking the same language." Bryan Dyer, Principal Cloverdale Elementary, Cascade, Oregon
