The digital licensing will be available to all students and teachers in grades 9-12 for use in class and at home until June 2026. Gizmos, by ExploreLearning, is used as a supplementary NGSS-aligned resource in our high schools. It provides digital access to science and math simulations and labs. Students are given the opportunity to explore, explain, and apply new knowledge within each Gizmo. In support of STEM in MDUSD, the Mt. Diablo Education Foundation is partnering with MDUSD to purchase this licensing and will be contributing toward the cost.
