Alabama Program Couples Real-World Science with Technology


PASCO scientific has partnered with the Alabama Math, Science and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) in a pilot program to explore how real-world scientific inquiry coupled with modern technology can accelerate the development of students' 21st century science skills.

Part of PASCO's Science-with-Technology Education Pioneer (STEP) program, the alliance will help school districts explore ways to bring science education in step with 21st century science tools and methods.

PASCO announced the STEP program at the National Science Teachers Association's national conference. Through it, AMSTI will work with PASCO to explore how it can accelerate its initiative that already recognizes the need for better science teaching and learning solutions. The pilot program centers on the use of the SPARK Science Learning System, an all-in-one mobile solution that integrates the power of probe ware with inquiry-based content and assessment.
