Next Generation Science Standards

During the development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), NAGT sponsored three events to help members learn about the process and provide feedback on the drafts. The first event took place in July of 2011 and was intended to provide information on the NRC Conceptual Framework for New Science Education Standards. In January 2013, NAGT hosted two more informational events: a webinar on January 22nd and a forum to gather feedback on January 24th.
