Smithsonian Science Education Center - Contents tagged with NGSS - Tags Informal Educators Also Face the Challenges of Meeting Next Generation Science Standards As the newest member of the SSEC team, I bring a unique perspective to our curriculum and publications department—that of informal science education. I’ve taught in informal science and environmental education programs for over twelve years, including managing park naturalist programs in Delaware, and starting up and running the Education and Outreach Program at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC). I’ve worked with schools, clubs, senior centers, scouting organizations, pre-K groups, birding and environmental clubs, boating and yacht clubs, home schoolers, special needs groups, and more.
Educational Sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Environment, Biographies BioWiki: The Dynamic Biology Hypertext - BioWiki Next Generation Science Standards › The Einstein Project The Einstein Project The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) were released in the spring of 2013 and are in the state adoption process nationwide. The Einstein Project is committed to providing districts and teachers with the best inquiry science curriculum, material support and professional development. We will continue to provide science units that align with the current WI Model of Academic Standards while supporting those districts that wish to transition to the new instructional approaches and strategies found in NGSS. Feel free to call (920.884.8800) or email The Einstein Project with questions about specific units and NGSS.

The Photosynthesis Cycle" The Earth's atmosphere is mostly composed of nitrogen. Oxygen makes up just 21 percent of the air we breathe. Carbon dioxide, argon, ozone, water vapor and other gasses make up a tiny portion of it, as little as 1 percent. These gasses probably came from several processes as the Earth evolved and grew as a planet. But some scientists believe that the Earth's atmosphere would never have contained the oxygen we need without plants. Photosynthesis is a complex reaction. 6CO2 + 12H2O + Light -> C6H12O6 + 6O2+ 6H2O In other words, while we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide, plants inhale carbon dioxide and exhale oxygen. Without the sun to feed plants (and the plants to release oxygen), we might not have breathable air. Obviously, plants are important, but not just because they give us food to eat and oxygen to breathe.
