Sigma Phi Labs offers simulations in each of the Next Generation Science Standards’ (NGSS) disciplinary core ideas. The Next Generation Science Standards is a multi-state effort in the United States to create new education standards that are “rich in content and practice, arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.”
The 4 floors of Sigma Phi Labs are divided by the 4 disciplinary core ideas, as well. Floor one contains life sciences, floor two is the physical science area, floor three has engineering and design, and floor four has earth sciences. Our simulations range in difficulty and complexity based on the 4 levels in which our learners are placed Rookie Scientist, Apprentice Scientist, Clever Scientist, and Elite Scientist.
