The Next Generation Science Standards are not like any of the previous state standards, but they incorporate the hands-on, minds-on type of learning typical in Career and Technical Education. When done with fidelity to the three dimensions of support (Science and Engineering Practices, Disciplinary Core Ideas, and the Crosscutting Concepts), the Performance Expectations will change the look of science classrooms K-12. This workshop will dig into NGSS and all the support materials that are attached. Bring a laptop or iPad to review materials---there are way too many to print. An iPad is the best option since there is a great app for NGSS. Time will be taken to compare the Mathematical Practices to the Science and Engineering Practices as well as to collaborate on ideas for the classroom so math and science teachers should attend with their CTE colleagues.


**Please Note: The number of registrations have exceeded the number of robots purchased by Carl Perkins. You  may still attend the workshop and learn coding and robotics, but will not go home with a robot.

Participants will take away a better understanding of how CTE, science, and math connect and the expectations for the Next Generation Science Standards.

Registration Fee:

FREE to Carl Perkins member districts
$125/person SWPRSC members*
$140/person non-members

*CTE teachers may attend free under the Carl Perkins grant. If a CTE teacher attends WITH a team of math/science teachers, all will be free. Math/Science teachers without a CTE will pay the regular registration. In addition, Carl Perkins money can reimburse districts for the subs IF a CTE teacher attends with the team.

College credit available: 0.5 credit hour; $45 payable to MidAmerica Nazarene
