Data provided in this report includes:

  • who are the leading providers of core programs for science instruction;
  • how much of science instruction time is spent using digital tools or content;
  • what are the most important criteria when science curriculum materials are selected.

Report provides additional insight on:

  • the extent to which Next Generation Science Standards have been adopted, and how they are being implemented;
  • whether schools are integrating science, technology, engineering and math curriculum into a single STEM curriculum, and the methods used to accomplish that;
  • the level of interest among science educators in emerging areas, including coding, robotics and virtual reality.
