Grades/Years 7 to 12.
The syllabus used is based on typical high school syllabuses for the three sciences. I have also added courses that specifically address the needs of modern STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math).
Scientific Experiments & Models
All the science courses have a variety of activities but the emphasis is on interactivity with scientific simulations:
The strategies integrated into the courses were developed by cognitive scientists from various universities in the U.S.A.
They call themselves The Learning Scientists, this is how they introduce themselves:
“We are cognitive psychological scientists interested in research on education. Our main research focus is on the science of learning. (Hence, “The Learning Scientists”!)”
The experiments and models section is based on a syllabus I developed using the Concord Consortium as a source.
The courses consist of experiments and data analysis using simulations, for example from PHET, NetLogo, Concord and other sources.
For the modelling I use the Sagemodeller from the Concord Consortium.
For the data analysis I use the Common Online Data Analysis Platform CODAP.
