PBLNow, a new division of PBLWorks, has developed science project-based units for grades K-12 and is looking for educators to test these units between February and March 2024 to provide feedback.

Any teachers who test a unit and provide feedback can earn $600.

The curriculum is separated by grade levels: elementary school, middle school and high school. The units focus on topics contextualized for Kentucky and last for 2-3 weeks at the elementary school level, 4-5 weeks at the middle school level and 4-6 weeks at the high school level.

All units are built using the NGSS standards, and each can be substituted for an OpenSciEd unit at the same grade level. Additionally, they include formative and summative performance tasks embedded within the unit.

More information about the units and the opportunities to earn money by testing the curriculum can be found on the PBLNow Elementary Science Units webpage, the PBLNow Middle School Science Units webpage and the PBLNow High School Science Units webpage.
