About Amplify Science:

Our Amplify Science program, 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 is grounded in research and proven effective by the authors behind Amplify Science—science education experts at the UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science and the digital learning team at Amplify. The Hall experts and the digital learning team developed the Do, Talk, Read, Write, Visualize approach. This research-based approach presents students with multiple modalities through which to explore the curriculum and reflects state-of-the-art practices in science teaching and learning.
