OpenSciEd Middle Grades Science Program

OpenSciEd was launched to improve the supply of and address demand for high-quality, open-source, full course science instructional materials. The goals of OpenSciEd are to ensure any science teacher, anywhere, can access and download freely available, high quality, locally adaptable materials. Though the goal of providing full course materials is still a couple years away, OpenSciEd is releasing six-week units of instruction as they are completed and externally evaluated as quality by Achieve’s Science Peer Review Panel.

OpenSciEd classroom materials are an open education resource and therefore free to download, copy, use, and/or modify. You can download the instructional materials free of charge at Access Materials page on the OpenSciEd website.

In an effort to lower barriers for all educators to use OpenSciEd, AquaPhoenix Education and OpenSciEd have partnered to sell kits that include consumable materials, basic investigative equipment, and unit specific goods at an extremely attractive price.

For content-related questions, please contact OpenSciEd at info@openscied.org.
