Science and Technology for Children
(STC), National Science Resources Center
Science and Technology for Children™ is an innovative, hands-on science program for children in grades one through six developed by the National Science Resources Center (NSRC). The 24 units of the STC program are designed to provide students with stimulating experiences in the life, Earth, and physical sciences and technology while simultaneously developing their critical-thinking and problem-solving skills.
The STC units provide children with the opportunity to learn age-appropriate concepts and skills and to acquire scientific attitudes and habits of mind. In the primary grades, children begin their study of science by observing, measuring, and identifying properties. Then they move on through a progression of experiences that culminate in grade six with the design of controlled experiments. For more information, contact:
