BSCS is committed to transforming the teaching and learning of science. Our products are research-based and include resources for teacher learning, comprehensive curriculum for the grades K–college classroom, and supplemental modules for science and health education.

Our comprehensive development process at BSCS makes use of the most recent research in learning and teaching. We work with top scientists, science educators, and teachers around the country to ensure that our materials are accurate, pedagogically sound, and effective in the classroom. Our focused development process includes nationwide field tests that provide us with the feedback necessary to produce successful programs. These field tests also provide us with important evidence about the effectiveness of our programs.
