Abstract: Middle school is the weak link in STEM education, and while there are numerous reasons, one major factor has been a lack of quality textbooks and curriculum materials. This project aims to change that with a complete, coherent, high-quality digital curriculum for Earth and Space Science that can replace any existing textbooks or other materials that teachers are currently using. The project meets all relevant NGSS standards and is completely free, posted online at, in part to ensure access in the developing world. Moreover, this project includes a full chapter on climate change that is suitable for use not only within this particular curriculum, but for all middle and high school units on climate change.
