NGSS and CSI-Maine

Middle school students setting out experiments

Students at Edna Drinkwater School setting out shellfish experiments, May 2018.

CSI-Maine is an excellent way to give students deep experience in all eight of the science and engineering practices identified in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and in the Framework for K-12 Science Education. As a project that is focused on questions about systems and change over time, it also provides great opportunities to bring NGSS cross-cutting concept to the forefront. As for subject matter content, CSI-Maine can support learning about ecosystems, population dynamics, zoology, and statistics, just to name a few of the many kinds of knowledge that can be brought into focus in this project. We have created a series of articles on this website to help teachers tie CSI-Maine to learning standards. The article that follows is a “jumping off place” for other resources on this site.
