PDI-12—One-Day Work Session: Addressing Engineering and Technology in the Next Generation Science Standards
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
9:00 a.m.–3:30 p.m.
Salon G, Marriott Rivercenter Hotel
Provider: Mariel Milano, Next Generation Science Standards Writing Team Member
Framing Questions / Outcomes
- How are STEM, college and career readiness, and NGSS related, and why is it important for all students?
- What are the relationships among science, engineering, and technology?
- How is engineering included in the Next Generation Science Standards?
- How do engineers use the products of science?
- How do scientists use the tools of engineering?
- What does engineering look like in a science classroom?
What does it mean to integrate engineering into the Next Generation Science Standards? Using sample standards, participants will learn how to integrate the core ideas of engineering into science content while developing the science and engineering practices outlined in the Framework for Science Education. This PDI will focus primarily on helping educators, schools, districts, and states understand the student outcomes for engineering in elementary, middle, and high school across all disciplines of science. Examples of student performances in engineering will be explored through interactive activities that draw upon participant's prior science experience to solve everyday problems. Ultimately, participants will leave with new knowledge and skills to implement the engineering aspects of the Next Generation Science Standards in their classroom, school, or district.
