“The teaching methods that you have developed here are very exciting. I must admit, that until I read the manual, I would not have imagined that kindergarteners would have been capable of grasping these concepts. I see it as a whole new approach that could have a great (positive) impact on early education.”
Past President and current Executive Secretary of New York State Technology and Engineering Educators' Association, Technology Education Teacher
“Knowing Science® is a valuable component to our first grade curriculum. It nurtures children’s intrinsic curiosity and wonder about the world in which they live. This program provides opportunities for exploration and inquiry, both of which are necessary for deep conceptual development of scientific concepts.
The teachers enjoy this program. Its structure leads to immediate student engagement and meaningful interactions among students. The provided lesson plans, manipulatives, assessments, extensions, and literacy components contribute to the richness of the program and foster in-depth learning.
It is an absolute pleasure to observe our first grade scientists as they collect, analyze and discuss data together. Our students beg their teachers to let them be involved in this program every minute of every day!!”

“The activities are certainly well-written, logical, and well-sequenced. I can see that you have thought deeply about what measurement entails and what ideas concerning the process children should learn through participation in hands-on activities. I know that students struggle with measurement and graphing concepts all the way through high school.”
