The storylines and tools have benefited from collaboration and funding support from:

Moore Project:

Science Practices:  The guidance for teachers and students in Next Generation Science Storylines builds on strategies developed in the Science Practices project at Northwestern University, funded by the National Science Foundation, grant DRL 1020316.  

CT New Terrain: The Connecticut Mathematics and Science Partnership grant sponsored storyline work with higher education faculty and K-12 teachers, which provided the starting drafts for several storylines on this site.

MI TESLA: The Michigan TESLA project has supported work on some of the elementary storylines available on this site.

NGSX: The Next Generation Science Exemplar System Project develops online resources to support face to face study groups of teachers, coaches, and administrators to work to bring 3D learning into science classrooms. Funding for the NGSX project has supported the development and piloting of some of these storyline tools.
