MySci – inspiring the next generation of scientists

MySci Unit Building Blocks and Philosophy

MySci units connect students to meaningful problem-solving activities. The students learn to apply new knowledge and skills relevant to the unit and beyond (below left).

MySci units are built around a project. The lessons and activities of the unit are integrated across subject areas. They are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, the Missouri Show-Me Standards Grade Level Expectations (GLEs) and Common Core, using the “5 E’s” format (below center).

MySci units include a flow chart that outlines the progression of the core lessons with possible extensions that take students into science and engineering practices related to completing the project challenge (below right).
