In 2020, the Texas Education Agency partnered with Great Minds® to develop high-quality materials for Grades K—5 as an open educational resource. PhD Science® TEKS Edition and PhD Science in Sync TEKS Edition are fully aligned to TEKS standards and are free to Texas educators as a part of this initiative.
Since then our phenomenon-based program has helped schools across the state attain remarkable gains in student achievement and engagement. Read below to learn more about our print, digital, and support resources created specifically for Texas.
