Where Astronomy and Music-Technology Coalesce. @jamwithjupiter / Jam With Jupiter

Bringing unique astronomy experiences to your school.

Meeting Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

THE THREE DIMENSIONS OF SCIENCE LEARNING - Within the NGSS, there are three distinct and equally important dimensions to learning science. These dimensions are combined to form each standard—or performance expectation—and each dimension works with the other two to help students build a cohesive understanding of science over time.

Improving Science Education to Improve the World.

JwJ Mission Statement - Through the mediums of science, technology and space, we at Jam With Jupiter are looking to build an informative and creative environment in which the students can learn in a unique way. Although the curriculum is heavily set in science, our two-pronged approach encapsulates music as well as science. Our instructors are both musicians and scientist themselves, and the students are encouraged to inquire about both. It is our strong belief at Jam With Jupiter that adding a strong creative component to the science, not only improves information retention in the students, it creates a fun and exciting atmosphere for the students to learn in. Not only do we want to deepen the student’s knowledge about technology, science, space and music, we aspire to create a lasting positive experience for the students. In the end, who doesn’t want to jam with Jupiter?

7 Criteria for Procuring and Evaluating High-Quality and Aligned Summative Science Assessments

Jam with Jupiter assesses for the 7 essential criterion of Next Generation Science Standards. Assessments provide evidence of student knowledge and practice described by the targeted standards by requiring students to use the three dimensions (science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts) to identify and interpret evidence and engage in scientific reasoning as they make sense of phenomena and address problems.

  • Three-Dimensional Performance
  • Phenomena
  • Scope
  • Cognitive Complexity
  • Technical Quality
  • Reports

The Need for New Science Ed Standards

Next Generation Science

Through a collaborative, state-led process, new K-12 science standards have been developed that are rich in both content and practice, and arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education. The NGSS were released in 2013 and are being implemented in states and districts across the nation.

Music-Technology & Ableton Live 10

Bringing a fun and educational introduction to digital audio workstations. With the EMF of Jupiter's magnetosphere as an input, we jam with the signal using Ableton audio devices.
