In January 2001, the Event-Based Science Program was recognized by the US Department of Education’s Mathematics and Science Education Expert Panel as a promising science program. EBS was one of only nine science programs selected for national recognition. It was one of only four programs that cover the important middle school years. The Expert Panel Report is temporarily unavailable.

Event-Based Science Remote Sensing Activities are listed by the Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE). DLESE is a geoscience community resource that supports teaching and learning about the Earth system. It is funded by the National Science Foundation and is being built by a community of educators, students, and scientists to support Earth system education at all levels and in both formal and informal settings.

In 1996 the National Science Foundation (NSF) undertook a study of comprehensive (at least one year) instructional materials for science in the NSF portfolio encompassing the middle school years. This middle school review was the first effort to examine a range of projects for a particular set of grades. This paper describes both the process and the results of that study.
