OpenSciEd is a nonprofit organization that brings together educators, state science specialists, curriculum developers, and professional development experts to improve science education by developing and implementing high-quality, freely available science instructional materials. A significant part of the instructional materials development process is field testing and revising units prior to their public release.
During the 2021-22 and 2022-23 school years, we are seeking the following New Jersey high school science teachers to fully participate in the OpenSciEd high school field test:
- 4 Biology teachers
- 4 Chemistry teachers
- 4 Physics teachers
The high school Biology, Chemistry, and Physics courses are:
- Based on research regarding how students learn, what motivates learning, and the implications for teaching,
- Developed with educators and extensively piloted by teachers and schools,
- Designed to be used with low-cost, standard laboratory equipment and materials amenable to large-scale deployment, and
- Designed for both classroom and remote learning environments.
