New Report on Middle and High School Labs

Posted: December 11, 2018

A new National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine report, Science and Engineering for Grades 6-12: Investigation and Design at the Center, was released this month about middle and high school science labs and how to best engage today's students in doing science and engineering through an analysis of evidence and examples. Specifically, this report provides guidance for teachers, administrators, creators of instructional resources, and leaders in teacher professional learning on how to support students as they make sense of phenomena, gather and analyze data/information, construct explanations and design solutions, and communicate reasoning to self and others during science investigation and engineering design. It also provides guidance to help educators get started with designing, implementing, and assessing investigation and design.
