The scientific and engineering practices in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) focus on the central practices used by scientists and engineers. These include asking questions and defining problems, modeling, investigating, analyzing and interpreting data, using mathematics, developing explanations, engaging in augmentation, and evaluating information.
The presenters describe approaches for preparing current and future teachers to advance their students' understanding of the NGSS scientific and engineering practices. They also talk about engaging experiences that directly involve students in using the practices.
