    Science Curriculum incorporates Next Generaion Science Standards (NGSS). NGSS are a new set of K–12 science standards that identify scientific and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas in science that all K–12 students should master in order to prepare for success in college and 21st-century careers.

    The NGSS allow students to: 

    Learn science by doing what scientists and engineers do. (Science & Engineering Practices) 

    Think of science learning not as memorization of disconnected facts, but as a cohesive understanding of integrated and interrelated concepts.(Crosscutting Concepts) 

    Develop their knowledge of science as they progress from grade to grade. (Disciplinary Core Ideas)
