How Because Learning Supports Your Teaching

Driven by Standards

Through incorporating Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into each Lesson, Because Learning is the ideal complement to your existing curriculum. In fact, most Lessons meet multiple standards.

This means you can stop stressing about meeting standards requirements and focus on engaging your students.

Community Engagement

Want to share how you implemented a lesson into your curriculum? On every lesson page, you’ll find a link to a community discussion. There, you can discuss Lesson tips, questions, comments or variations.

Create Your Own Lesson Variants

Making your own Lesson is as easy as one click. Copy an existing Lesson or start from scratch – it’s just one more way Because Learning provides a flexible platform for your classroom.

Fantastic Support

What Do Educators Say?

Because Learning takes science theory and turns it into hands-on experimentation and data collection for Santa Rosa School District students.

View the Case Study

Because Learning experiments have made it easy to create hands-on, impactful experiences that get our students excited about science and technology. During our high altitude balloon launch, several middle school girls were able to take their own temperature readings and track the flight of the balloon.

Kevin Reeve is the Director of Teaching and Learning at Utah State University and launched Cache Makers in Logan Utah in 2014, a club that focuses on experiential learning in STEM topics.

My classes love the Because Learning activities, but I think our favorite is building the light show. Some of our kids successfully had 10 to 12 lights going to the beat of music.
