Among the courses now available for use in classrooms statewide are Science for grades K-5, and for grades 6-8, Earth/Space Science, Life Science, Physical Science, and Comprehensive Science, 1, 2, and 3.

Multiple studies show that regular use of Science Techbook in the classroom has many positive academic results for educators and students across a variety of districts and populations in the United States. For example, in an independent study with Arizona’s Sahuarita Unified School District, a third party evaluated Discovery Education’s impact and found that use of Science Techbook resulted in increased science, math, and reading proficiency in grades 3-8. In the second study, a correlation was found between frequency and depth of use of Science Techbook and student achievement in science in grades 6 and 7. This research and more can be found here.
