In response to the COVID-19 situation we have been working with school districts to provide support for teaching remotely. We offer virtual professional learning programs such as Going Remote with Inquiry-Based Learning and Making Place-Based Learning Phenomenal that can be customized to meet your school district’s specific needs.
Our remote programs:
- model engaging and effective remote science and engineering instruction
- align with the NGSS and the MA 2016 STE Framework
- foster instruction and assessment using the Science and Engineering Practices
- may be tailored to address the specific needs of your school or district
- include science content as well as pedagogy
This is a portal for teachers to access assignable, self-paced, and self-contained activities that provide students and their families with high-quality, standards-aligned material to keep them engaged and learning.
Although this year is a different learning experience for us all, BioBuilder Educational Foundation is committed to providing science students, teachers, and their parents with the online resources they need for a successful academic year.
Created specifically for middle school students, BioBuilder is offering a new program, BioBuilders 6-7-8, adapted from our high school curriculum. This program can accommodate virtual, in-person, and hybrid classroom models, and gives students an introduction to BioBuilder's synthetic biology curriculum and opportunity to pursue a group project in biodesign, under the supervision of BioBuilder Teaching Fellows.

Engage your students in the "Survivor Island STEM Week Challenge" with the Wade Institute for Science Education, National Marine Life Center, and Lloyd Center for the Environment during the 2020 MA STEM Week sponsored by the MA STEM Advisory Council and Executive Office of Education. What’s the challenge?
"Your class has been stranded on a deserted island and the only source of freshwater is quite a distance from your encampment. You must find a way to move water to the encampment and then filter it to make it safe to drink.”
NASA’s App Development Challenge (ADC) is a coding challenge where NASA presents technical problems to middle and high school students seeking student contributions to future exploration missions. By responding to the App Development Challenge, students take a part directly in the Artemis Generation endeavors to land American astronauts, including the first woman and the next man, on the Moon by 2024.
