See what's different and bring science to life in new ways.

he field of science evolves as quickly as the learning habits of students. That is why educators need innovative content and tools that distinguish themselves from the expected, and they engage the modern learner.  

Project-based learning is one of the most effective ways to help students learn, and as explained by our expert advisor Douglas Enns (middle school science teacher), an important teaching approach in classrooms.

By working together in small groups, students develop group skills, such as shared decision making, clear communication, and conflict management.

Ignition Science: Collaborative Projects addresses the changing landscape of how students assimilate content. This collection stands apart in the world of science education with nearly 70 projects that includes step-by-step instructions, budget and timetable estimations, expected outputs, and measures for evaluating success.
