MISciPL@N materials provide introductory experiences for all science teachers for exploring the shifts in teaching described in A Framework for K12 Science Education and assessed as part of the Michigan Science Standards (adopted in November 2015) and built upon the Next Generation Science Standards.

These materials were prepared to be used as they are. We hope you can download the documents, plan from them, and implement them as written. Please feel free to adjust them as needed but also be sure to maintain and meet the goals as described in the materials.

There will be additional experiences and information added to this page, continue to check often.

The MISCIPL@N materials were developed by the Michigan Mathematics and Science Centers Network and was funded by a grant from the Michigan Department of Education.
