Welcome, families!

Out in the world, science keeps advancing. We need to make sure the way we teach kids science keeps advancing, too. 

That’s why you will probably notice that the way your child is learning science this year doesn’t look like the way they’ve learned it before, or like the way you learned it, or like anything at all you think of as “science class.” 

And that’s why we’re here to tell you more about Amplify Science, how it’s different, why it’s different and what you can do at home to support your child’s deep learning about how to solve real-world problems…with science

We hope you enjoy learning more about Amplify Science as you explore this site.

What is Amplify Science?

Amplify Science is an engaging curriculum for grades K–8 designed by experts at UC Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science (“The Hall”), in partnership with Amplify’s team of designers and engineers. It enables teachers to use the most up-to-date materials and approaches to help students explore and understand the wonders of the physical world

These are the people you want designing your child’s science program. Why? Because the Hall is not an ivory tower or isolated lab somewhere: it’s a public science center that is all about hands-on science learning, all informed by the latest research on how people learn science. And Amplify’s team knows just how to package the Hall’s expertise into original, engaging lessons that bring out the scientist in every kid.

How is Amplify Science different?

You might think of (or remember) science class as memorizing the parts of a cell or the order of the planets. But in recent years, science teaching has moved away from fact-based lessons and toward deeper learning—where students actively investigate and figure out real-world problems. (And absorb information like the parts of a cell or the order of the planets in the process.)

This shift in science teaching and learning is reflected in new national science standards (the Next Generation Science Standards, or NGSS) and—you guessed it—in the Amplify Science program. Amplify Science was designed from scratch, using the latest best practices in science teaching and learning, to meet those new standards. 

Watch the video below if you want to learn more about the Next Generation Science Standards.

What's in Amplify Science?

Every unit of Amplify Science gives students a real-world problem to solve: How is it possible for a train to float? Why did the gecko population decrease? To arrive at answers, students use hands-on materials, read relevant research, discuss and collaborate, and develop evidence-based written arguments and explorations.

Digital tools support them by delivering information and experiences outside the confines of the classroom and beyond pen and paper: microscopic views, graphing and modeling apps, visual simulations, and more.
