From Education Week:

This article focuses on recent work at MSI related to the impact of professional development courses on teachers and students. It also considers how science centers and museums can serve as a key resource for helping teachers adapt to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Museums can give teachers immediate access to the kinds of hands-on activities and inquiry based learning that NGSS and the Common Core call for. The article also cites efforts by institutions in Connecticut, New York and California to ensure that professional development opportunities align with NGSS and schools’ needs.
