ECHOS® is a comprehensive, hands-on interactive early childhood science curriculum designed for small groups of children, and aligned with preschool science standards. The curriculum is research-based and scripted to facilitate guided inquiry and increases teachers’ comfort level with science. ECHOS® not only explores science, but provides a foundation for children’s critical thinking.
APEX Science brings the excitement of hands-on science exploration to children in afterschool programs. Developed by Frost Science with funding from National Science Foundation, and focusing on children in grades K through five, the 32 inquiry-based lessons strengthen understanding of core concepts in physical sciences, life sciences, earth and space sciences and engineering. APEX also introduces learners to the methods scientists and engineers use to solve real-world problems. The curriculum includes a training model for facilitators providing afterschool care.Purchase APEX Science Curriculum
Girls RISEnet, a partnership between Frost Science, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, SECME, Inc., and a network of 10 science centers, strengthened the professional capacity of informal science educators to engage and motivate minority girls in grades six through 12 to explore and pursue science and engineering careers. The project addressed the national need to cultivate diversity in preparing the next generation of female scientists and engineers. The project website includes related research and science and engineering activities.
