Teachers TryScience, a web site for teachers, provides free and engaging lessons, along with teaching strategies and resources, which are designed to spark students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The site also features collaboration tools to enable teachers to discuss and share effective instructional practices.
On Teachers TryScience, you can access lesson plans that allow students to create water filters, design earthquake-proof structures, explore vertical farms, and much more. You can also find professional development resources such as a video on differentiated instruction or a tutorial on what engineering might look like in your classroom. New content is added all the time, so visit the site often and add a lesson, resource or discussion of your own!
Teachers TryScience is a collaboration among IBM, the New York Hall of Science, and TeachEngineering.org
