Game-Based Science Curriculum for In-Person and Distance Learning

Science mastery is critical for student achievement, but science can be one of the most difficult subjects to teach in blended and distance learning environments. With Penda Learning's online, standards-aligned curriculum, students can continue learning science uninterrupted, whether they are in class or at home. Penda has been proven to raise student achievement and mastery of science concepts by providing rigorous science instruction that engages students through various gaming elements. This motivates students to learn, even when a teacher isn’t in the room.
