Digital Platform

Enjoy an intuitive digital platform where teachers access features that enhance their curriculum and make science more teachable.

We know that engaging students in investigation-centered science takes effort and time, and that often there are not enough hours in a day.

Over the years, we've seen many districts struggle with the implementation of other science programs in their classrooms — especially when a digital platform does not meet the needs of teachers and students.

We believe teachers deserve a robust and easily accessible science curriculum that offers ongoing implementation support so that no matter what happens, science happens—effectively and equitably.

We’ve been in the K-12 curriculum development space for decades and recognize the need for high-quality NGSS-aligned curricula, an intuitive digital platform and ongoing implementation support.

I love using IQWST online for 7th grade science!! Both me and my students use the digital platform. The storyline for 7th grade is clear and builds upon previous learning.  The labs are engaging, the digital platform makes lesson planning easy, and each lesson seems to flow into the next seamlessly.  

Lesson planning is fast and easy, allowing me to prep for labs, meet accommodations, and reserve my brain power and time for meeting the needs of my students year to year, day to day, and even hour to hour.  The students appreciate the digital platform as well. When asked, students liked the digital platform for typing their responses.
