The Xraise outreach team at CLASSE along with outreach staff from the Cornell Institute for Biology Teachers and the Boyce Thompson Institute traveled to Washington DC to participate in a workshop addressing the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The first workshop of its kind was hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, aimed at helping science educators understand how these national science standards will impact K-12 education. NGSS encompass an ongoing science education reform initiative launched in the late 1980's aimed at improving the quality, relevance and availability of STEM. NGSS represent a set of goals for our nation, outlining what educators expect students to be able to do and understand after completing secondary school, building a foundation for their post-secondary education in STEM. These goals emphasize the importance of conceptual understanding building coherently from grades K-12, promote the interconnectedness of science, and fully embrace the integration of science and engineering practices. Xraise is looking forward to the adoption and implementation of NGSS in New York State.
