NSTA Releases STEM Curriculum Series Focused on Innovation
The National Science Teachers Association’s NSTA Press has released the first five books of its new STEM Road Map Curriculum Series for K–12
A professional education organization, NSTA has approximately 55,000 members that include science teachers, administrators, researchers, business representatives and others involved in science education. NSTA Press offers a library of activities and resources for the classroom and publishes 25 to 30 new digital and print books each year for pre-K through college science curricula.
The books are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards, as well as Common Core State Standards and the Framework for 21st Century Learning, according to a news release. They follow the theme of innovation and progress, challenging students to solve real-world challenges across STEM fields.
For instance, “Transportation in the Future, Grade 3: STEM Road Map for Elementary School” asks students to apply their knowledge of magnetic interactions and mathematics to design a train prototype capable of carrying passengers to their destination.
Each STEM Road Map Curriculum Series book is priced at $22.95 (or $18.36 for NSTA members) and can be found in the NSTA Science Store.
