Talk in science is critical. Talk is thinking spoken aloud. Talk needs to come before we ask Ss to write, construct explanations. Talk after Ss experience phenomena, building shared thinking & language, fluid , malleable open 2 revision. @KRScienceLady #ngsschat #ngss #PK2Gray
Videos of science classrooms provide opportunities for rich analysis of classroom instruction, teacher moves, & student thinking. We have made our best K-12 videos & associated resources freely available for teacher learning & growth. https://bit.ly/3atrHMk #STEM #STEMed #SciEd
Great new report from @GeorgetownCEW on the uncertain path for youth to a good job. One thing it misses - we can't keep creating add-ons to a K12 system that isn't fundamentally designed to meet all students needs and expect a different result https://cew.georgetown.edu/cew-reports/pathway/
High school #science Ts! Have you checked out our new flagship #biology program, BSCS Biology: Understanding for Life? This resource not only supports Ts in meeting the @OfficialNGSS but also prepares Ss for life in our complex, interconnected world. https://bit.ly/3uu55WK #NGSS

About the Program
This program is designed to provide 9th & 10th grade students with a unique experience in a collaborative makerspace environment where they explore technology, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Students progress through multiple modules in Technology & Application of Science including Structural and Mechanical Design/ Fabrication, Information Technology, Web & Digital Communications, and Visual Art. Each module consists of a variety of projects that are designed to help students develop their knowledge of 2D and 3D design, rapid prototyping, communication, problem-solving, data analysis, and critical thinking skills.
Throughout this course, students have access to a variety of resources including traditional hand tools, power tools, and computer-controlled equipment such as a vinyl cutter, 3D printers, CNC routers, and a laser cutter. In addition, they will be introduced to mechatronics through the design and fabrication of a computer (Arduino) controlled mechanical system.
