dc.description.abstract In 2013, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were released nationwide for adoption. California was among the first states to adopt the standards, replacing the Science Content Standards that had been used since 1998. NGSS is structured differently than any other standards and calls for a non-traditional way of teaching science through inquiry and exploration to develop deeper understanding s of the content. Now, teachers in California are expected to teach to the NGSS to prepare students for the California Science Test (CAST) every Spring in grades 5, 7, and 9; however no curriculum has been created to help guide teachers in unfamiliar territory. It is imperative that teachers are educated on how the new standards look, how to navigate them, and how to properly implement them into all grade level classrooms in order to set our students up for success on the CAST, as well as to promote and encourage STEM related careers in the future. en
