This site 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 features collaboration tools to enable teachers to discuss and share effective instructional practices.

As you look at how each of the lessons in Teachers TryScience is correlated to standards and curricula think about the notion of STEM integration and how this interdisciplinary approach to learning can benefit the creative, critical thinking and problem-solving skills of your students. A STEM integrated lesson will: stimulate critical thinking and apply inquiry skills; apply mathematical and technological solutions to engineering problems; may apply science concepts from more than one science discipline; recognize that more than one approach to problem solving may be valid; may require alternative measures of assessment; recognise that different students approach a problem or topic from different entry points; recognise that prior knowledge may determine the approach the student takes to the problem; and that sometimes the research question simply generates many more questions.
