GPS-Based STEM Curriculum

Next Generation Science & Math Lessons for Middle School

Sorry, but the GPS STEM curriculum is currently unavailable. We are still in the process of migrating the educational material from to

The U.S. government developed this free educational curriculum using GPS concepts and applications to stimulate student interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

The curriculum is designed for the middle/high school level. It provides a school year's worth of STEM content, but the lessons are modular to support differentiated learning across grades and students.

Each lesson promotes inquiry based learning through the use of fun stories, videos, and activities that engage students at low/no cost to the instructor. Lessons have been tested by teachers in real world classrooms.

The curriculum maps to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), including Three Dimensional Learning.
