Next Generation Science Standards identifies the science all K-12 students should know. These new standards are based on the National Research Council's A Framework for K-12 Science Education. The National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Achieve have partnered to create standards through a collaborative state-led process. The standards are rich in content and practice and arranged in a coherent manner across disciplines and grades to provide all students an internationally benchmarked science education.
The print version of Next Generation Science Standards complements the nextgenscience.org website and:

In this video, Dr. Heidi Schweingruber, deputy director of the NRC's Board on Science Education (BOSE) and co-director of the study that produced A Framework for K-12 Science Education, explains how the Next Generation Science Standardsï»¿ were developed, ï»¿why the standards matter, and what's new in the print edition published by the National Academies Press.
This video shows NSTA's past executive director discussing the challenges and importance of NGSS.
The AAAS panel discussion on NGSS focuses on the changes the new standards for K-12 students would bring and how states, schools, and teachers would implement them.
