Science Companion is a hands-on science program for elementary-aged children.  Each lesson draws on children’s knowledge and curiosity about how things work in the world. Science Companion invites children to wonder about their world, and teaches them science processes as they explore, quantify, and interpret the world. The children are also given the time and encouragement to draw, write, discuss, and reflect upon what they have done. The program’s approach to primary education balances discovery-based learning with teacher-directed instruction.

Science Companion teachers and science administrators report that children in their classroom are fully engaged with science in unprecedented ways.

Science Companion was conceived and designed using the National Science Education Standards and the AAAS Project 2061 Benchmarks.
