What is NGSS?

The Next Generation Science Standards are national science standards that take a whole new approach, weaving science into all K-12 education with a focus on critical thinking, methods, and processes with factual content providing support, rather than serving as the only goal. The overall goal is to cultivate students who can readily apply their knowledge and skills to real world issues.
