The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) provide a comprehensive framework for science education that encourages students to think critically, ask questions and explore the world around them.

By aligning science instruction with NGSS, educators help students become informed and equipped for scientific and technological challenges of the future.

EVERY student demonstrates a passion for science as engaged citizens who "recognize it's profound influence on our lives, our local environments, and our global community."

(California Association of Science Educators, 2020)
