We created Twig Science from the ground up for the Next Generation Science Standards.

The program ensures that all students have an interwoven understanding of Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs), Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs), and Crosscutting Concepts (CCCs). Our unique instructional design challenges students to become creative problem solvers, making sense of engaging, real-world phenomena.

More than Just a Science Class

Continuity in STEM education

A high-quality, digital-first core science and engineering curriculum for Pre-K–8 with measurable progressions through the grades.

Developing science literacy

A commitment to improving global science literacy through engaging, media-rich curricular materials.

Everyone’s included

Promoting equitable, inclusive, and accessible learning environments for students.

Integrated Teacher Support

Our science resources support teachers to deliver high-quality STEM lessons, including comprehensive lesson planning via print or digital teacher editions and clearly labeled hands-on lab kits. The easy-to-use digital platform includes presentation tools, interactives, background knowledge guides, assessments, reports, rostering, and accessibility options.
