3D Learning and 3D Assessment in STEM

The Smithsonian Science for the Classroom program is setting the standard for 3D learning and 3D assessment. Developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center, this new integrated STEM curriculum is designed to engage students in phenomenon-based learning through coherent storylines and connect them firsthand to the world around them. The program was developed in consultation with teachers and technical experts and field-tested in a range of schools with diverse populations. Drawing on the latest findings and best practices from educational research, the curriculum was specifically developed to meet the Next Generation Science Standards. The program helps teachers integrate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through engaging hands-on lessons. In addition, Smithsonian Science for the Classroom’s 3D assessment assists teachers in gauging how well students are progressing through a variety of assessed performance tasks and written assessments. The program includes print and digital components, as well as hands-on materials, which are available from Carolina Biological Supply Company.
