About Amplify Science:

Amplify Science, the only middle school program rated all green by EdReports, blends hands-on investigations, literacy-rich activities, and interactive digital tools to empower students to think, read, write, and argue like real scientists and engineers. Each unit of Amplify Science engages students in a relevant, real-world problem where they investigate scientific phenomena, engage in collaboration and discussion, and develop models or explanations in order to arrive at solutions.

Amplify Science has been proven effective and is grounded in research conducted by the science education experts at the University of California, Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science and on the digital learning team at Amplify. Together, this team developed the research-based Do, Talk, Read, Write, Visualize approach—an approach that presents students with multiple modalities through which to explore the curriculum, and reflects state-of-the-art practices in science teaching and learning.
