K-12 Science Market and STEM Outlook Report 2018
Published: January 30, 2018 Content info: 151 Pages
Description

K-12 Science Market and STEM Outlook provides information on the curriculum materials used by educators for science instruction in U.S. classrooms. The 2018 report is one of a series of annual reports from Simba Information providing data on the choices schools are making as they select resources for core K-12 subjects.

The information and analysis contained in this report will help science product developers and marketers learn more about K-12 science instruction so they can sharpen the focus of their product plans.

K-12 Science Market and STEM Outlook is based on a survey of educators during the 2017-2018 school year. Those educators included classroom teachers, science teachers, science department chairs and instruction/curriculum supervisors.

Data provided in this report includes:

  • who are the leading providers of core programs for science instruction;
  • how much of science instruction time is spent using digital tools or content;
  • what are the most important criteria when science curriculum materials are selected.

K-12 Science Market and STEM Outlook provides additional insight on:

  • the extent to which Next Generation Science Standards have been adopted, and how they are being implemented;
  • whether schools are integrating science, technology, engineering and math curriculum into a single STEM curriculum, and the methods used to accomplish that;
  • the level of interest among science educators in emerging areas, including coding, robotics and virtual reality.
