NSCF’s 2018 National STEM Scholar Class Will Bring Space into their Classrooms with the NGSS-Compliant DreamUp Curriculum
DreamUp is excited to announce the creation of a custom curriculum, designed for the National STEM Cell Foundation (NSCF), that will provide students around the country access to space. Inspired by the upcoming launch of an experiment designed by NSCF’s 2018 National STEM Scholar class on Blue Origin’s New Shepard space vehicle, the DreamUp-developed Next Generation Science Standards-compliant curriculum will excite Scholar’s learners about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) topics.
This curriculum is the latest offering via which DreamUp is bringing space to classrooms, and classrooms to space. “We are thrilled to be working with the National STEM Cell Foundation to inspire the next generation of innovators to reach for the stars,” says DreamUp Co-founder and CEO Carie Lemack. “We are impressed with NSCF’s recognition of the need to empower and engage educators with easy to implement curriculum, so that their enthusiasm and confidence is passed on to their students.”
The curriculum will be used by teachers invited to join the National STEM Scholars in both this year’s and future classes.
