Liberty Science Center is a leader in the implementation of the New Jersey Student Learning Standards - Science and is the official New Jersey partner for OpenSciEd.

OpenSciEd is a nonprofit organization that brings together educators, state science specialists, curriculum developers, and professional development experts to improve science education by developing and implementing high-quality, freely available science instructional materials. A significant part of the instructional materials development process is field testing and revising units prior to their public release.

LSC is working with OpenSciEd to recruit Biology, Chemistry, and Physics teachers in New Jersey to field test new high school instructional materials.
