Includes materials for 20 students, reproducible student content, detailed digitial teacher content and access to professional development videos about each activity. Grades 4–5. 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 student had to say about the program: “Learning math and science is different from learning in class because it focuses on a more hands-on approach to things. In class, we focus more on tests and worksheets, while IMSA mixes things up.”
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.
