Woz ED Science Kits make it possible for students to experience what scientists do to investigate the natural world and what engineers do to design and build systems. The project-based lessons and materials promote scientific inquiry, engaging students in practices that establish foundational knowledge of core scientific ideas and build on that foundation to ensure a cohesive understanding of science.

Going beyond NextGen alignments,
Woz ED Science Kits are built as standards-first curriculum.

The Challenge

The new science standards include more hands-on, project-based experiences, which require more planning and preparation time.

The new standards call for students to form hypotheses, test theories, and analyze data. Creating new lessons and having the necessary resources on hand to meet the needs of these standards can be daunting, time-consuming and costly.

Woz ED specializes in the development of units of study that allow students to develop an engineering mindset with minimal impact on the teacher. These turnkey units were written for the science standards and can immediately be implemented in the classroom.

Meeting The Challenge

Through partnerships with thousands of districts, Boys & Girls Clubs, STEM Ecosystems, Scout Troops and schools, Woz ED is turning Steve Wozniak’s vision into reality.

Woz ED’s Science and STEAM kits are being used in over 3,000 schools across America, and are answering the challenge. Our turnkey kits allow teachers with minimal technical expertise to facilitate deep learning experiences in science and career pathways such as coding, cybersecurity, drones, mobile development, engineering, data analysis, animation and artificial intelligence – starting in Kindergarten.

The world needs inventors, great ones. Our mission is to provide students with opportunities so that they can be successful… to put the spark in great inventors who can change the world.

 

“JUST LIKE STEVE DID.”

Woz ED Science kits make it possible for students to experience what scientists do to investigate the natural world and what engineers do to design and build systems. These project-based lessons and materials promote scientific inquiry, engaging students in practices that establish foundational knowledge of core scientific ideas and build on that foundation to ensure a cohesive understanding of science.

Next Generation Science Standards represent a shift from an emphasis on memorizing scientific facts to an emphasis on doing science – giving the learner the opportunity to pose questions and discover answers through project-based, hands-on experiences.

  • Turnkey, ready-to-use kits
  • Easy-to-follow lessons with clearly explained concepts
  • Cloud-based teacher support
  • OPEN-ENDED DESIGN—students are given a problem that they can work through as a team to create a solution.
