Program overview

Amplify Science California is a brand-new blended science curriculum for grades K–8 that meets 100 percent of the Next Generation Science Standards and the California Science Framework. With Amplify Science California, students learn to talk, read, write, think, and argue like real scientists and engineers through investigations of real-world problems and scientific phenomena, gaining the skills needed to master the NGSS.

In Amplify Science, students take on the role of a scientist or engineer and are introduced to a relevant, real-world problem. They engage in investigations using hands-on materials, reading selections, rich media, and more to draft, strengthen, and defend their claims about the unit anchor phenomenon and how to solve the problem.

The Amplify Science assessment system is grounded in the principle that students benefit from regular and varied opportunities to demonstrate understanding through performance. Read more about Amplify assessments in Grades K-5 and 6-8.

Designed in California for California

Since their release in 2013, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) have raised the bar for science education. Moving the focus of instruction away from memorization and toward active engagement and critical thinking, the standards teach students to think like scientists and engineers and grapple with core scientific principles, in addition to supporting deep learning of concepts that cut across science domains. Amplify Science has been designed from the ground up to meet 100 percent of the Next Generation Science Standards and respond to the instructional shifts called for by the National Research Council’s Framework for K–12 science education (2012).
