Panel Discussion on the Next Generation Science Standards: Moving from the Framework to the Classroom

On May 17, 2012, AAAS hosted a panel discussion on the Next Generation Science Standards entitled "Moving from the Framework to the Classroom." Shirley Malcom, director of AAAS Education and Human Resources, moderated the discussion on the changes the new standards for kindergarten through 12th grade students would bring and how states, schools, and teachers would implement them.

The participants included Stephen Pruitt, vice president of content, research, and development at Achieve, an education non-profit that is facilitating the writing of the new standards; Heidi Schweingruber, deputy director of the National Research Council’s board on science education; and Anita O’Neill, supervisor of science, technology, and engineering education for Montgomery County, Maryland.
