Curriculum Design Principles

Storytelling: learning science through communication

The student experience is guided by the Green Ninja character and storyline that includes Green Ninja videos and games. The curriculum also uses storytelling as an important method of communication and helps students tell their own stories in writing, film, and using other digital communication tools.

Environmental Problem Solving: using science to create a healthier planet

In each unit, the culminating experience is a student challenge that focuses on solving an environmental problem that is relevant to students’ lives. By working on problems that extend outside the classroom, the curriculum aims to provide a real-world context for learning science and engineering.

Data and Technology: interpreting and analyzing information

Many of the Green Ninja projects use real-time data and web and video technologies to solve problems and design solutions. The development of data literacy and computational thinking skills leverages student interest in new technology and provides students with insights into future career opportunities.
