The Next Generation Science Standards

To succeed in the 21st century, Vermont’s students need access to high-quality, research-based science education. In 2013, Vermont adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as a foundation for science instruction. Based off the Framework for K-12 Education, the NGSS refocuses K-12 science education to improve readiness for college and STEM careers as well as preparing students to become informed, knowledgeable citizens. The standards are designed so that students apply scientific practices, ask questions, problem solve, make mistakes, and correct misconceptions, with the larger goal of reaching deeper scientific understanding.
