What is Scienstars?
What is Scienstars? Put simply, Scienstars is a new science education product. It consists of a live action science fiction series, meant primarily for children in the elementary through middle school levels, but anyone can watch, because the episodes are packed with action, special effects, character, and story; everything that modern viewers have come to expect.
But that’s not all. Core ideas, scientific practices, and crosscutting concepts from the latest science education standards are also incorporated directly into the story. Lesson plans show exactly how the episodes relate to the standards, and include exercises, experiments, and additional resources; everything you need to teach science in a way that’s both engaging and fun.
A scientific research society once asked its members if science fiction influenced them to go into science, and the overwhelming reply was a resounding yes. Scienstars’ mission is to inspire the next generation of scientists.
