Change is on the horizon for STEM education across the country. A recently released report from the National Research Council presents a new framework for K-12 science education that identifies the key scientific and engineering ideas and practices all students should learn by the end of high school. The framework calls for a shift in the way science is taught and is the potential foundation for new science standards that could be adopted by many states.
Minnesota is a lead state in developing the new standards which will be released for public comment at the end of March.
Please save the date of April 12 to not only learn more about the framework and standards but to engage in meaningful interactive dialogue and small group discussions that will explore how we are preparing our students for the grand challenges of today and the future.
Co-presented by the University of Minnesota Hubert H. Humphrey School of Public Affairs and College of Education & Human Development in partnership with the Carl & Eloise Pohlad Family Foundation, Minneapolis Foundation, Minnesota Department of Education, Minnesota Humanities Center and Science Museum of Minnesota.
