In June of 2013, the Kansas State Board of Education adopted the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) as the “Kansas College and Career Ready Standards for Science”, making Kansas the third state in the nation to adopt the rigorous, internationally benchmarked standards. This booklet will provide an overview of why new science standards have been adopted, a glimpse of A Framework for K-12 Science Education and family fun science activities that can be done at home.
