ADVANCING STEM IS A K-5 COMPLETE STEM CURRICULUM FOR THE NYS SCIENCE LEARNING STANDARDS CLASSROOM.
Advancing STEM is a curriculum kit program produced in partnership with educators from across the Cattaraugus-Allegany BOCES and Erie 2 Chautauqua BOCES regions. STEM educators created a curriculum that immerses K-5 teachers and students in the NGSS/NYS Science Learning Standards.
Our goal was to create a curriculum that was aligned to standards, highly engaging, and fit within the already full teaching schedule. We really wanted the materials in our kits to serve as the cognitive and creative bridge between instruction of the teacher and understanding of the student.
The NYS Science Standards aligned Advancing STEM curriculum utilizes three dimensional teaching, 5E unit structure, and the engineering design process in all units at all grade levels.
