Science/ STEM Networking

Teachers will gain a basic understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). We will explore the rationale for new standards including the conceptual shifts and goals of education for the 21st century called for by the NGSS. Then participants will learn about the basic structure of the NGSS and gain a deeper understanding of NGSS components through the interactive activities.
