The CA Next Generation Science Standards shift classroom science instruction from learning about science facts to figuring out how science processes and phenomena work. Achieving this vision for all California students requires that they build toward science mastery through repeated opportunities for meaningful, engaging, and successful learning experiences. To provide those experiences, the CA NGSS lays out a coherent progression for K–12 science based on accumulated research about science learning. Science is more than a disconnected sequence of facts—it requires an understanding of the process of science, the fundamental ideas within each discipline of science, and certain underlying themes that are common to all the sciences.
