Standards-based Science Kits

Expectations for scientific achievement have changed significantly over the past decade and a half. Advances in technology have altered how information is shared and restructured our economic system to one that is knowledge-based and STEM-driven. Children today are growing up in a world very different from the one experienced 15 years ago. As these children grow and begin to enter the workforce, the science of the past will no longer prepare them for the demands of the labor market they will enter. Mathematical and conceptual reasoning top the list of desired skills in this new economy. Students must be equipped to solve unstructured problems and work in team environments to succeed in tomorrow’s job market.
