The Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) has engineered a weekly STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum aligned with Florida’s new Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking (BEST) standards for students of all grade levels. The MODS Challenge invites students, teachers and parents in PreK through grade 12 to solve real-world problems through STEM and project-based learning. 

During a time when distance learning is at the forefront, this curriculum bolsters 21st century skills, including creativity, critical thinking, design, teamwork, leadership, risk-taking and perseverance. Additionally, each week’s challenge offers selected readings for every grade level and access to some of the IMAX® films in MODS’ library of documentaries. The challenges strive to empower students to become STEAM learners and passionate problem-solvers for life.
