The “E” in STEM Education: Why Engineering is Vital to Science Standards

This webinar is now on-demand! Watch the full event here.

The cry for K-12 students to have stronger STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics—skills continues, yet engineering is often absent from traditional science content standards. Engineers are vital to our society. They design the technology, processes, and systems that drive our 21st century economy and meet the public’s needs and wants. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) incorporates the engineering design process as core knowledge for students. This is the first time that engineering has been so prominent in K-12 science standards.

Join NASBE July 28, 2015, at 3:00 p.m. (EDT) for a webinar discussion about the “E” in STEM education and science standards. Learn why engineering is such an important piece of NGSS and what engineering standards look like from Portland State University’s Cary Sneider. NASBE President Mary Lord, also of the District of Columbia State Board of Education, will discuss how DC is managing the implementation of the engineering component of NGSS.
