Great Minds, creator of Eureka Math® and Wit & Wisdom®, is proud to introduce an exemplary new elementary science program: PhD Science™. Based on the new science standards and created by our team of teacher–writers and experts, this innovative curriculum inspires students to wonder about the world and empowers them to make sense of it.
In classrooms across the country, science education is undergoing an instructional shift away from rote memorization and toward phenomenon-based curriculum in which students think and act like real scientists. This dramatic change requires a new approach to science teaching where teachers facilitate the lesson, but students own it as they explore phenomena to understand how the world works. PhD Science is based on the Next Generation Science Standards and The Framework for K–12 Education—the models behind this instructional shift—was designed to support this pedagogical change.
