Washington has adopted a new set of standards aimed at providing consistent science education for students in all grade levels.
The adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards — which emphasize skills in engineering and technology — was announced Oct. 4 by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn and Gov. Jay Inslee at a press conference at Cascade Middle School in Highline.
The standards spell out what students at each grade level should know in four domains: physical science; life science; earth and space science; and engineering, technology and science application.
