Why is SPI doing this? SPI was awarded a grant from ASTC to share NASA’s Universe of Learning resources. We chose to use the Modeling the Universe curriculum because it fits SPI’s emphasis on play and science learning with creative, collaborative art components that were suitable for a wide range of learning styles and interests.
