The implementation of the new Next Generation Science Standards may make it easier for elementary teachers to devote more time to science, especially in the younger grades. Read EdSource's article, "New Science Standards a Boon for the Littlest Learners," to learn more about the evolving education system and science standards, featuring a quote from the Hall's interim director, Rena Dorph.
