NSTA Designates ANOVA Science Education’s RIP® ~ing Through STEM "Exemplary"

Selection was based on its highly successful impact on learning and instruction for Grades K-12, and student lifelong thinking and decision making empowerment.

This distinction is a result of many years of consistently solid data-based evidence generated from implementation of the RIP in schools.

HONOLULU, HI, USA, April 30, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ -- ANOVA Science Education Corporation (ANOVA Science, http://scientificinquiry.com) today announced that its "Research Investigation Process" (RIP®) STEM education model has been recognized with the distinction of "Exemplary Program in STEM Education" by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). “We are delighted that our 'RIP~ing Through STEM™' was selected by this highly respected STEM organization. This distinction is a result of many years of consistently solid data-based evidence generated from implementation of the RIP in schools,” stated ANOVA Science’s President Dr. Robert Landsman. “These data include an extensive conglomeration of externally- and internally-generated assessments and program evaluations focusing on student learning performance and teacher instructional practices, as well as both groups’ attitudes towards learning and teaching STEM content.”

The "RIP~ing Through STEM" scientific and engineering practices-based critical thinking education model and program for Grades kindergarten through 12 integrates the four STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) content areas in a rigorous instructional and learning paradigm; naturally incorporates the newest technologies available; and stimulates students’ interest, excitement, and the desire to learn. "RIP~ing Through STEM" is tightly aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and complements and supports the shift toward inquiry-based learning paradigms by the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

The scientific and engineering practices that compose the RIP make learning of STEM enjoyable for even the challenged student (Figure 1: www.anovascience.com/PR%20Figures/Figure1--4-30-2014.jpg), and students as young as kindergartners seem to learn standards-based STEM content better using this model than other instructional approaches (Figure 2: www.anovascience.com/PR%20Figures/Figure2--4-30-2014.jpg). The "RIP~ing Through STEM" program also fosters teacher confidence in STEM instructional ability (Figure 3: www.anovascience.com/PR%20Figures/Figure3--4-30-2014.jpg).

Examples of RIP model incorporation of STEM can be found as "Featured RIP Scientific Inquiries" at www.scientificinquiry.com and in ANOVA Science’s recently published book, "Making Scientific Practices Matter in the Classroom ... and Beyond" (visit www.scientific-practices.com for extensive preview of the contents and a complimentary copy of the Foreword written by past NSTA President Dr. Robert E. Yager). Both feature personal journeys authored by teachers who put the RIP into action in their classrooms, resulting in success stories for both their students and themselves.
