Science and Engineering Practices in the Classroom
What does science look like in action? Age-appropriate practices of science and engineering are embedded into the MS College – and Career-Readiness Standards for Science. Join us to examine these eight Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs) and watch as teachers implement them in the classroom.
