We are a team of engineers, educators and digital innovators with the ambition to redefine scientific curiosity in elementary and middle schools. Our inquiry-based learning experiences use strategies that are often cross-disciplinary and always designed to inspire kids to engage in active science learning or discover fun structures hidden within mathematical concepts. At science60, we are constantly pushing the limits to explain abstract scientific concepts with simplicity and captivation.
We are experts in developing experiential learning lessons aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Common Core in the United States. Our approach is differentiated by the following:
Curriculum aligned, so teachers get lessons which perfectly complement academic content
Turnkey, so teachers have minimal additional preparations to do prior to lesson delivery
Economical, so school districts can contemplate system-wide implementations
Have you ever played a board game which explains the concept of reproduction? Or a card game which allows you to build chemicals from atoms and then associate those chemicals with household items?
In 2020, science60 is launching its first augmented reality (AR) powered card game: Discover Molecules and Compounds. Players build molecules or compounds with atom cards and then using the smart phone app, players understand the electron configuration of the molecules and compounds being formed, the characteristics of the molecules or compounds and if they are present in household items at home or in daily life outside home.
At science60, we believe that high quality experiential learning in elementary and middle schools can have a profound impact on a child's 21st century skills development. This is why all our learning experiences are grounded in these principals.
Brain Development: Brains are Built Over Time, From the Bottom Up The basic architecture of the brain is constructed through an ongoing process that begins before birth and continues into adulthood. During the first few years of life, 700 new synapses (neural connections) are formed every second. After a period of rapid proliferation, connections are reduced through a process called pruning, so that brain circuits can become more efficient. Early experiences affect the nature and quality of the brain’s developing architecture by determining which circuits are reinforced and which are pruned through lack of use. Some people refer to this as “use it or lose it.”
