Organizational Info

Who we are

At OpenSciEd, we believe in the power of students to learn and the power of teachers to be innovative and creative in the classroom. We are committed to disrupting a status quo that includes inequitable instructional materials and a lack of professional learning for science teachers. Our instructional materials are independently evaluated to be among the best units designed for the NGSS and our professional learning is equally transformative. Our hope is, by making our instructional materials free and publicly available, districts can afford great professional learning, resulting in equitable science classrooms that unleash the power of teachers and students.
