Science education has evolved far beyond asking students to memorize facts or follow steps to complete a cookie-cutter experiment. Preparing the next generation of scientific thinkers and doers hinges on equipping them with transferable skills like asking essential questions, analyzing data, challenging assumptions, and reasoning analytically. It all starts with nurturing their curiosity! 

Listen to this conversation with product creators and education leaders from BrainPOP, PhET Interactive Simulations, Tuva, and the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network. They share unique insights on the evolution of science education and discuss strategies to empower educators to confidently embrace new approaches to teaching and learning. Listen to this edWeb podcast to explore how to:

  • Nurture a culture of learning anchored in student-driven inquiry
  • Build measurable, transferable scientific-thinking skills and practices
  • Expand science teachers’ capacity to teach complex science and engineering practices


This edWeb podcast is of interest to middle school teachers, school and district leaders, education technology leaders, technology integration specialists, and science-focused educators and administrators.
