    Science, Technology, Education for the Next Generation

    We will provide dynamic training and mentoring to fifty K-9 teachers in LAUSD Local District South on the state adopted, industry recognized Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). In 2013, California adopted the NGSS, modernizing an outdated curriculum and endorsing a more impactful way to teach students. Six years later, implementation is still uneven with limited teacher training in L.A. Teachers trained on the new standards will inspire and enable their students to pursue STEM careers.
