Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are a set of K–12 science standards developed in the United States. They aim to improve science education by setting expectations for what students should know and be able to do in science from kindergarten through high school graduation. The NGSS focus on three dimensions: scientific and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts, and core ideas in science. They provide a framework for educators to create engaging learning experiences and prepare students for success in college and careers.
