The Integrated Science Program is a multi-year program for Ages 13-20 implemented during science class.

It removes disciplinary silos & leverages authentic contexts to make formal science learning as exciting as real-world STEM.

And it’s powered by PBL, UDL, competency-based assessment and the sciences of learning & development (SoLD).

Educators want to do more interdisciplinary teaching. Students crave real-world relevance, and all “wicked” problems span multiple disciplines. Place-based, contextualized learning better prepares students for university, careers, citizenship and caregiving.

But 90% of the time, “integrated” or “interdisciplinary” courses are just a smorgasbord: a little of this and a little of that. Concepts & skills don’t always mesh. Rigor is rare. Designing high-quality integrated curricula is actually difficult.

We believe that integration done well is incredibly powerful for diverse learners. Through 20+ years of R&D we’ve developed robust Open Learning Architecture™ delivering comprehensive & coherent STE(A)M integration. It’s *more* challenging & content-rich than traditional siloed courses. And it’s:


Contexts Help Build Background Knowledge

We learn best through narratives that situate concepts, phenomena and evidence in a real place, with real people, and real consequences.

Relevance Paves the Way for Innovation

It's time to equip young people with the knowledge and skills they need to negotiate the real world--and innovate for the future.

Connect the Personal, the Local & the Global

Society’s most pressing global issues are integrated, not only across disciplines but across cultures, demographics & regions. Break down the silos & build up the networks!

Balanced Diets are Diverse

We took cues from nutritionists and ensured that students were challenged across multiple disciplines, multiple skills & multiple ways to show understanding.

Content that is Born Accessible

Multiple entry points mean fewer learners getting lost, shutting down or giving up. Support structures, maps & rest stops assist all travelers.

Sustainable Open Education Resources

We pioneered the Sustainable OER model, and use it to evolve our materials inside the Information Age. Teachers & students benefit from ongoing updates.
