Carolina’s K-12 school science curriculum including Building Blocks of Science® 3D and Smithsonian Science for the Classroom™ ready to engage international students

BURLINGTON, NC, Feb. 9, 2021—Leading school science supplier Carolina Biological partnered with Dubai-based reseller The Knowledge Hub to enable schools in six Middle Eastern countries to access Carolina’s award-winning science materials for teaching grades K-12 science. For the first time, teachers in United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Kuwait, Bahrain and Qatar can choose some of the best science curriculum available from the United States of America. These resources for newgeneration science classes support a modern approach to science learning to enable students to cope with the market needs facing a fifth industrial revolution with studentdriven, hands-on, and phenomena-based Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Carolina’s rigorous and recently developed science materials for elementary school curriculum leverage e-learning and technology to enhance science curriculum. These titles, Building Blocks of Building Blocks of Science® 3D and Smithsonian Science for the Classroom™ (1-5), are print, digital and hands-on format products that help teachers address new science standards. High school curriculum and investigations includes Carolina Kits 3D® and Carolina Kits 3D® FLEX. These exciting school materials are all available now through The Knowledge Hub.

Carolina Kits | 3D FLEX is a new product line to help high schools provide highquality, hands-on science instruction during COVID-19 disruptions. The solution includes all of the digital and physical components that individual students need to complete science investigations for the entire school year from anywhere, boxed and ready to take home. Carolina Kits | 3D FLEX programs for remote learning are a fullyear lab program for either high school biology or chemistry, intended to complement the classroom teacher’s curriculum and instruction. The FLEX product is a box of hands-on supplies that contains everything a student needs to complete take-home science labs and assignments from their teachers to perform 16 different science investigations. The program includes access to over 120 digital resources, including instructional videos and digital labs.

Carolina Kits 3D are high school investigations for life science, physics and chemistry labs, built from the ground up to engage students in scientific and engineering practices while they apply core ideas and crosscutting concepts. Each kit provides students with experiences that are key to thriving with the NGSS and phenomena-based learning. Each kit includes printed teacher's manual, reproducible student guide, materials for the labs for a classroom of 45 students, and one-year access to digital resources that support three-dimensional instruction for NGSS.

"Carolina Biological is thrilled to partner with The Knowledge Hub, a leading worldwide education distributor, to bring high-quality American science curriculum to the Middle East," said Jim Parrish, President and CEO of Carolina Biological Supply Company. "Together, we can help K-12 science teachers meet rigorous new threedimensional standards while their students are actively engaged in doing and learning science. With The Knowledge Hub partnership, schools in the Middle East will have a direct contact to provide local assistance that meets our high standards in service, product deployment and training."

"The Knowledge Hub looks forward to introducing Carolina Biological’s science curriculum products to our school customers," said Ravinder Kumar, CEO at The Knowledge Hub. "There is great demand for materials to help our science teachers adapt to new standards in science education and virtual learning during the pandemic. Carolina is an excellent science education publisher with a long history of success in the United States that will be appreciated by our schools."

Setting the standard in 3D learning and 3D assessment, the Smithsonian Science for the Classroom curriculum provides cohesive storylines, superior teacher support, and research-supported instructional design that is backed by proven results with point-ofuse support. Smithsonian Science for the Classroom is a high-quality core science and engineering curriculum program specifically developed to meet the NGSS. This elementary curriculum is designed to engage, inspire, and connect grades 1 to 5 students firsthand to the world around them. Smithsonian Science for the Classroom helps teachers to integrate science, technology, math and engineering through engaging and hands-on lessons. The series includes print and digital components, as well as hands-on materials.

Carolina’s Building Blocks of Science 3D hands-on unit kits are for students in grades K to 5. This complete, phenomena-based program integrates engineering into every grade and includes everything teachers need for their entire class for every lesson with hands-on materials, print, and digital simulations and components. The program is a core curriculum that combines interactive investigations, literacy components, and digital resources to teach students science content and investigative skills. The program’s 99 digital simulations give a straightforward and quick way for teachers to assess student understanding. The custom-created simulations are directly tied to the phenomena in the units.

The Knowledge Hub

Established in 2001 as Technokids Trading L.L.C., The Knowledge Hub was born out of the undying need to provide high-quality education to students to cope with the ever-growing demands for advanced learning and development. Through the altruistic initiative and guidance of Sheikha Lamia Faisal Al Qassimi, invigorated by her aspiration to enhance the quality of education through I.T. solutions, The Knowledge Hub came into being in Dubai as a pioneer in the EdTech market. The constant support that Knowledge Hub has been providing to teachers and students since the beginning stirred the organization to take a giant leap of expanding from Dubai to other Emirates and eventually throughout the Middle East region.
