IMSA Fusion Classic Module Kits include all materials needed to engage students in rich, inquiry-based, hands-on activities. Provides 32 hours of instruction. Includes materials for students, reproducible student content, detailed digitial teacher content and access to professional development videos about each activity (1-year access).
IMSA Fusion is a teacher professional development and student STEM curriculum program to maintain or increase student interest, involvement and literacy in science and mathematics. The learning experiences focus on helping students “learn how to learn” by emphasizing logical, mathematical and experimental scientific thinking with relatable topics. These curriculum modules focus on students in upper elementary through middle school as research has suggested that these teachers need more opportunities to gain content knowledge and students in these grades lose interest in science and math. IMSA Fusion is versatile to fit your learning environment and can be used as an after-school program or embedded in daily instruction as an elective or co-curricular. Units can provide content knowledge and hands-on experiences related to makerspace projects as well. Contact Flinn for district level pricing.
IMSA Fusion has found great success in many schools! Here is what one teacher had to say about the program:
“I have learned that students are just as good of teachers (sometimes better) than I am! Encouraging a more collaborative learning environment is a direct result of the IMSA program.”
Here is what one student had to say about the program:
“We actually do the science and don’t just read about what we are doing.”
IMSA Fusion is recognized as a top program in the nation by Change the Equation: STEMWorks and as one of the top K–12 STEM Programs in America by the Bayer Corporation.

MS-LS1-8. Gather and synthesize information that sensory receptors respond to stimuli by sending messages to the brain for immediate behavior or storage as memories.
MS-PS2-3. Ask questions about data to determine the factors that affect the strength of electric and magnetic forces
MS-PS4-3. Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals.
HS-LS1-1. Construct an explanation based on evidence for how the structure of DNA determines the structure of proteins, which carry out the essential functions of life through systems of specialized cells.
4-PS3-4. Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.
