Program Abstract

In what ways are the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and STEM Initiatives in harmony with each other? Join us on Thursday, December 7 at 6:30 pm Eastern time for an interesting discussion on this topic.

This web seminar will explore the NGSS vision for a scientifically literate society and how this vision is mutually supportive of STEM education which focuses on aspects of the designed world through the application of science and engineering practices.

Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:

  • "The activities with students were very informative and well made."
  • "The inclusion of videos, interactive elements, and question opportunities really contributed to learning. The videos on student presentations helped me get ideas for my own class."
  • "I enjoyed the moderator using videos from her classroom to exemplify the topics. It was valuable to see them implemented in a real life setting."
  • "Although I am very comfortable with NGSS, I like how the videos were used . . . I think using the classroom scenarios will be a great way to engage my teachers in discussion about the practices."
