To support learning aligned with the recently adopted Next Generation Science Standards for California, science classrooms need to be spaces where students are actively engaged in figuring out and explaining scientific phenomena. This talk will be interactive and focus on what an NGSS aligned lesson could look like, along with ways preservice science teachers are being supported in implementing the NGSS through research and enrichment opportunities such as the Next Gen ASET Science and Engineering Practices (SEP) Tools and STEM Teachers as Researchers (STAR) program.
