Inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers, and curious citizens

Amplify Science is a brand-new, highly engaging K–8 core curriculum designed for three-dimensional, phenomena-based learning.

Our difference

Amplify Science is unique in its truly standards-based content, immersive learning experiences, multimodal approach, and ongoing support for teachers.

A powerful partnership

Amplify Science was developed by the science education experts at the University of California, Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science and the digital learning team at Amplify.

Built for the NGSS

Amplify Science is a brand-new blended science curriculum for grades K–8 that meets 100 percent of the Next Generation Science Standards. Our full-year curriculum integrates the tools, strategies, and assessments students need to develop the deep scientific understanding envisioned by the NGSS.

Real-world, problem-based experiences

Every unit in Amplify Science has students taking on the role of a scientist or engineer in order to investigate a real-world, 21st-century problem. Through their investigations, students are exposed to a diverse range of scientific fields and career paths.

Research-based, multimodal approach

Through a proven, multimodal approach, Amplify Science students learn to do close readings of scientific texts, build visual models of their understanding of scientific phenomena, use digital simulations to collect evidence, and craft oral and written scientific arguments based on evidence.

Ongoing teacher support

Curriculum should be more than a dropped-off kit and list of instructions. Amplify Science focuses on supporting the teacher at all levels. From an online teacher’s guide and lesson-specific differentiation strategies to robust professional development, teachers of Amplify Science feel comfortable, confident, and excited to teach.
