Educating the Next Generation of Scientists

My new employer, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, announced today its release of HMH Science Dimensions, a K-12 science curriculum:
“HMH Science Dimensions represents an entirely new approach to teaching science, one that is grounded in the real-world application of scientific concepts. This comprehensive program focuses on investigative activities and three-dimensional learning and leverages technology to provide new opportunities for engagement,” said Mary Cullinane, Chief Content Officer and Executive Vice President of Product Planning, Development and Marketing, HMH. “Our focus on experiential and interactive learning supports students and teachers as they pursue integrated and holistic scientific understanding within the NGSS framework.”
Not only will this new curriculum be more interactive and technology-based, it will feature exclusive content from Randall Munroe, author (of What If?, Thing Explainer, and the web comic, XKCD), former NASA roboticist, and just all-around awesome guy.
