Humphrey School will present events focused on bringing innovation to education.
The first event will take place April 12 and focus on science and engineering. Change is on the horizon for STEM education across the country. A recently released report from the National Research Council presents a new framework for K-12 science education that identifies the key scientific and engineering ideas and practices all students should learn by the end of high school. The framework calls for a shift in the way science is taught and is the potential foundation for new science standards that could be adopted by many states. Minnesota is a lead state in developing the new standards which will be released for public comment at the end of March.
