PHOTO CREDITS Special thanks to the students and teachers of the following schools and school districts for inviting photographers and videographers into their science class- rooms and for allowing the images of students’ investigations to be included in this volume. We also acknowledge the diligent efforts of the schools’ partner organizations as they seek to improve the quality of K-12 science education, both locally and nationally.

Marking the culmination of a three-year, multiphase process, on April 10th, 2013, a 26-state consortium released the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school.
Print copies of the Next Generation Science Standards are available for pre-order now or you can view the online version at nextgenscience.org
The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
