Virginia Science Activities, Models & Simulations (SAMS)

The Virginia Science Activities, Models and Simulations project engages students in middle and high school in practices that are essential for learning science through inquiry. The activities involve asking questions or defining problems, using models or sensors, collecting data, interpreting results, using mathematics, technology and computational thinking, constructing explanations and designing solutions based on evidence.

These activities, models and simulations are correlated to the 2010 Science Standards of Learning and Curriculum Framework and are also organized by standard as stand-alone tools.
