About the NWESD Science Team
The NWESD Science team supports instruction shifts and systemic changes necessary so that all students engage in the vision painted by A Framework for K-12 Science Education.
The NWESD supports teachers of science in shifting instruction towards a common vision of science education that empowers students to see themselves as scientists and engineers. In concert with science education stakeholders throughout Washington, we support OSPI’s timeline for transition to next-generation science for all students.
The NWESD offers Next Generation Science Standards workshops. In these workshops, you will understand the architecture and development of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Learn about the connections between the Washington State Science Standards and the NGSS and develop a deeper understanding of the specific standards for your grade level. Increase your understanding of the Washington State implementation timeline for the NGSS and consider key instructional shifts for these new standards.
