Future Development of Science Instructional Materials

Elementary School Development

Organizations interested in developing the materials using our instructional model and design specifications should submit a response to this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). This RFQ asks interested parties to assemble a team who are able and interested in developing elementary school (K-5) science materials designed for the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The team chosen for this development will work within OpenSciEd’s structure of partnering with states to provide direction and field testing in order to bring practitioner voices to the forefront of the development process as well as build demand for high-quality curriculum and professional learning materials. The work on the elementary school curriculum will begin in September 2022 and conclude with a release of the full program by Spring 2026. See the RFQ for more information.

OpenSciEd hosted an informational webinar about the RFQ and selection process on April 20th. Here is the recording from that webinar and the folder with slides and Jamboards.
