CSTA Classroom Science

Want to try new NGSS-aligned online chemistry activities?

WestEd seeks high school chemistry teachers to participate in a study during the 2020-2021 school year.

WestEd and Carnegie Mellon University created online chemistry activities to help students learn reasoning and science practice skills. Using authentic scenarios, students learn from animated videos, solve problems with immediate feedback, and perform experiments in a virtual chemistry lab.

The study, funded by the US Department of Education, will determine whether the activities help students develop deeper understandings of chemistry and enable teachers to help students in more targeted ways. Participating teachers will use the activities during half their classes and existing instruction during the other half. Teachers will receive a $1,000 stipend for engaging in study activities. Visit ChemVLab to learn more about the activities.
