     Next Generation Science Standards
     nextgenscience.org The NGSS standards can be found at http://nextgenscience.org.  As we move from awareness to transition into the new standards, focusing on the 8 science and engineering practices, which are described more fully in Appendix F of the Standards, is very important.
