Students Present at NGSS Conference

(Date Posted 10/10/2018)

Select students from Bordeaux Elementary School and Oakland Bay Jr. High School presented to a group of educators and lawmakers in the 5th Annual Next Generation Science Standard (NGSS) Conference in Olympia on October 9, 2018.
The Washington State Board of Education, Ready Washington, Washington STEM and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction hosted a celebration for the fifth anniversary of the state adoption of Washington State Science Learning Standards focusing on how they are improving science education for Washington students.
Third-grade students from Bordeaux Elementary along with students from Oakland Bay Jr High interacted with conference participants in a science fair like presentation. Students presented class projects, their experiences in learning and answered questions about their experience, what they learned and where they would like to go next with the projects.
The Next Generation Science Standards help students to focus on critical thinking, communication as they build knowledge over time and put their learning into practice through practical applications connecting experience with learning that is essential for future growth and development.
