About this webinar:

The Framework for K-12 Science Education, developed by the National Academies of Sciences, offers a powerful new vision for American science education. The Framework served as the basis for the development of new science learning standards, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and will be deeply informing national and state science assessments in the coming years. This webinar, presented in partnership with the Research+Practice Collaboratory, will focus on what is new and different about the Framework’s vision for science education and how afterschool organizations are designing programs and staff professional development to help young people engage with the Framework in ways that are true to the spirit of afterschool.
