Mi-STAR is developing an integrated science and engineering curriculum for grades 6-8, aligned with the Michigan Science Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. Throughout the course of each Mi-STAR unit, students apply science and engineering practices to address a real-world issue through a unit challenge.
Find out more about our model for sequencing and bundling the NGSS middle school gradeband here and see an example Mi-STAR lesson.
We plan to publish three units online for Michigan educators in Fall 2017. Subscribe to our news blog to receive updates on the curriculum.
