It has been just over ten years since the release of the Framework on K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards. As states continue their implementation efforts of state standards, there is a need for a reflection on these efforts looking at curriculum, instruction, assessment, professional learning, and policy. To identify the conditions and develop a road map for moving implementation efforts forward, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a hybrid summit on April 26 and 27, 2022. Participants shared ideas to imagine what science education could look like in ten years, and how these visions might be achieved. This publication summarizes the presentation and discussion or the event.
