Learning Inspired by Dynamic Content

Explore the World of Science

STEMscopes Science Powered by CNN is more than just a learning tool—it’s a gateway to immersing students in the world of science. From eye-opening virtual reality experiences, to stunning footage of natural phenomena, to breaking science news releases, STEMscopes Science Powered by CNN empowers students to take a deep dive into the unseen world around them and understand how it works.

Hands-on Learning Explore Content Through the Five Senses

Using a combination of hands-on materials, videos, simulations, and observation of the natural world, students can explore real-world phenomena the way scientists do: through their five senses. Hands-on activities include teacher facilitation support, suggested materials lists, and procedures. Short on time? With the click of a button hands-on activities can be assigned to students digitally so they can conduct the exploration at home.

Differentiation for Unique Learning Style

Every student has a unique learning style; whether they are kinesthetic learners that enjoy touching, doing, and getting messy with hands-on instruction, auditory learners that shine with teacher-led instruction, or visual learners that find success with dynamic videos, imagery, and descriptive texts, STEMscopes Science Powered by CNN has a solution for you. By differentiating (offering each student learning resources that match their needs, not only in learning style but at the rigor they need), teachers can support students throughout the learning process, empower students to succeed, and reach deeper levels of comprehension that whole-group instruction cannot always provide.

Assessments for your Students in a Variety of Modalities

STEMscopes Science Powered by CNN offers a variety of assessments, from traditional multiple choice, to open-ended responses and rigorous claim-evidence-reasoning. Assess your students in a variety of modalities to understand where their knowledge gaps are so you can effectively reteach where needed, provide acceleration to the advanced learners, and support struggling students when the content gets challenging.

  • Argue: Claim-Evidence-Reasoning

    An assessment in which students write a scientific explanation to show their understanding of the concept in a way that uses evidence.

  • Open-Ended Response Assessment

    A short-answer and essay assessment to evaluate student mastery of the concept.

  • Multiple Choice Assessment

    A standards-based assessment designed to gauge students' understanding of the science concept using their selections of the best possible answers from a list of choices.
