Twig Science Nevada Approved for Statewide Use
Featuring three-dimensional, investigation-driven adventures exploring real-world and local phenomena, the Pre-K–6 program encourages students to take on STEAM roles and become creative problem-solvers.
The Nevada Department of Education has adopted Twig Science Nevada, a complete Pre-K–6 curriculum from leading education multimedia company Twig Education, making it available for purchase statewide.
Twig Science Nevada is aligned to the Nevada Academic Content Standards for Science (NVACSS) and transforms the standards into immersive, investigative journeys in which students take on real-life STEAM roles—from astronomers and ecologists to roller-coaster designers—to make sense of local and national phenomena and design, build, and test solutions to engineering challenges.
“Twig Science is my pixie dust,” said Julie, a 4th grade teacher. “It keeps the students excited about learning something new. They can’t wait for the next lesson.”

The approach to learning in Twig Science Nevada through the NVACSS represents a shift away from traditional science instruction to multimodal, three-dimensional practices that better represent how science and engineering are performed in the 21st century, with students constructing models, engaging in academic arguments, and taking part in video and digital investigations, as well as doing hands-on lab work. This three-dimensional approach to learning for Generation Z students helps to foster inclusiveness and prepare students for the realities of college, careers, and trades.
“We agree with the bedrock premises of the NVACSS,” said Catherine Cahn, CEO of Twig Education, “such as the idea that children are born investigators and that science and engineering require both knowledge and practice. We’re honored to be able to help teachers all over Nevada ignite students’ natural instinct for inquiry to access that body of knowledge and develop the skills to extend it.”
