Next Generation Science Standards Released!

posted Apr 17, 2013, 10:16 AM by Stephen Schmidt
The NGSS were released last week.  If adopted by the states, it should transform science education in this country to be much more process-driven.  In other words, students should be learning concepts in the context of inquiry-based science rather than memorization of facts or too much text book time. 
Snapshot Science has been aligning its programming with the Framework for K-12 Science Education, which was the foundation for the NGSS.  That process will continue using the NGSS.  Wisconsin will likely adopt the standards.  In any-case, you can count on Snapshot Science to continue to engage students in inquiry-based science supported by the Next Generation Science Standards.
