The online teacher lesson plans (Teacher’s Guide sold separately) coordinate the ScienceWiz Collisions projects with web-based materials. These include animations, videos, interactives and assessment materials.

Supplemental internet materials allow students to progress at their own pace and to their own level of interest and detail. The web contents are periodically updated by scientists and educators.

These Teacher’s Packs are designed so that students have their own readers and materials. Extensions to the primary projects are feasible as there are sufficient supplies for all. This Pack consists of largely non-consumables and uses robust components designed for years of classroom use. Replacement parts can be purchased on this website or by contacting ScienceWiz™.
