Today, there is an increasing focus on STEM education as governments and institutions around the world understand that 21st-century jobs call for 21st-century skills. This has led to a reappraisal of STEM pedagogy, creating a need for STEM programs that are investigation-driven and skills-focused allowing students to make sense of real-world phenomena.
Twig Education is inspiring students around the globe with award-winning K-12 science programs and digital platforms developed by world-class scientists and storytellers.
Developed by 26 states and institutions like the National Research Council, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are a revolutionary framework for teaching science, from Kindergarten to Grade 12.
Incorporating fully-aligned three-dimensional learning, the NGSS drive students’ scientific inquiry, and offer a roadmap of where they are going. The NGSS empower educators, giving them the flexibility to design learning experiences that stimulate students’ interest and prepare them for college, careers, and civic engagement.
We believe that learning science is about bridging the gap between the outside world and the classroom. Our unique approach aims to inspire lifelong curiosity in all students by combining engaging storytelling with real-world challenges.
Our resources span the physical and digital, from our suite of teacher manuals, student workbooks, and hands-on kits to our digital platform of videos, assessments, and interactives.
To harness the experiential nature of the NGSS, our curriculum incorporates hands-on kits that turn students and teachers into scientists, conducting experiments and research projects in real-time.
Our flagship product, Twig Science, is a media-rich, phenomenon-based K–6 program developed to meet the California Next Generation Science Standards.
Developed in close collaboration with leading academics and California teachers, Twig Science covers NGSS Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and Crosscutting Concepts using developmentally-appropriate progressions in each and every module, across all grades.
Built from the ground up for California, Twig Science meets all of the three-dimensional benchmarks of the NGSS while integrating California’s Common Core Standards in English Language Arts, Literacy, and Math. Our curriculum maximizes cross-curricular instructional opportunities while ensuring there is always time for science.
