The Lawrence Hall of Science (LHS) at the University of California, Berkeley is accepting new participants for 2015-16 elementary school and middle school science curriculum field trials. A number of spots are open for LHS’ middle school physical science unit, Magnetic Fields.
The LHS Learning Design Group’s rich science curriculum, which is developed in partnership with Amplify Education, combines hands-on inquiry, the use of digital tools such as rich simulations, and support for disciplinary literacy (reading, writing and talking about science).
Teachers receive all materials to teach the units as well as an incentive for participation. Technology must be provided by the school. Click here for descriptions of the units available for field trial and a link to an application, or email the LHS field manager for more information.
