The next generation of science standards
It will be interesting to see how The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and initiatives are implemented across the country. Even more interesting to our firm will be the design response to help the progress of science education and finally integrating engineering.
The NGSS were developed by 26 states and their broad-based teams together with a 41-member writing team and partners throughout the country.
“Science concepts build coherently across K-12. The emphasis of the NGSS is a focused and coherent progress of knowledge from grade band to grade band, allowing for a dynamic process of building knowledge throughout a student’s entire K-12 scientific education."
