Online Learning

What is the TIES Online Learning Resource?

TIES provides busy educators, homeschooling parents, and curious science lovers in general with an easily accessible online version of our professional development events and other helpful resources.

TIES Workshop Walk-Through

The following links take you through an actual TIES Workshop. The focus is on Florida’s middle school science standards on evolution. In their latest report, the National Center for Science Education gave Florida a grade of A for its science standards on evolution.


By clicking the buttons below, you can watch students working through two hands-on activities on the topic of natural selection. Both activities can be downloaded below under the “Ready-to-Go Evolution Unit” tab.
