The ULS Science Department’s work and success with addressing the complexity of Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) alignment is of much interest.
They were selected to present at the 2017 National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) National Conference in Los Angeles, and at two international education conferences in Hawaii- Hawaii University International Conferences and Hawaii International Conference on Education.
The National Science Teacher Association (NSTA) selected the ULS science department’s proposed session, “Analysis and Incorporation of NGSS Into Existing Science Curricula” for presentation at the 2017 National Conference in Los Angeles, which will be held from March 30 to April 2, 2017. In addition, two science department members will also present their work with an energy conservation project intended to promote student interest in STEM through problem-based learning in a session titled “Going Green! Middle Schoolers Out to Save the World.”
The Hawaii University International Conferences and Hawaii International Conference on Education selected the ULS Science department’s submission for presentation at the 2017 Hawaii University International Conferences on Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences and Education held from Tuesday January 03 to Friday 06, 2017 in Honolulu, Hawaii and the 15th Annual Hawaii International Conference on Education held from January 3 to January 6, 2017 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The decision to accept their submission was based on a process of double-blind-peer review.
The Science Department also presented at the Hawaii Board of Education meeting on November 15, 2016 in the segment- Charter School Bright Spots- University Laboratory School’s success with incorporating Next Generation Science Standards (“NGSS”) into the school’s existing science curricula.
