Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS):
In 2014, New Jersey adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with full implementation in grades 6-12 by 2016-27 and K-5 by 2017-18. The simplistic goal of the standards is to help ensure students are learning science by 'doing science' rather than 'learning about science'. To learn more about the standards, there are several resources linked below.
