Resource: BLOSSOMS from MIT


The Blended Learning Open Source Science or Math Studies (BLOSSOMS) initiative, a new project from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, creates videos with a STEM focus for use in high school classrooms. The program features a library with around 50 math and science lessons, available free for download or as streaming video, and also by request as DVDs and videotapes.

blossoms1To create the first lessons, MIT faculty members teamed up with educators from Jordan and Pakistan. Modules are now made and submitted by teachers from around the world.

The 50-minute lessons include video segments, a teacher guide, downloadable handouts, and a list of online resources about the topic. The mix of short videos and in-classroom exercises are designed to engage students in problem solving and critical thinking and excite students about math and science and STEM careers, among other goals.
