The new Wisconsin Science Standards represent a shift in approach that places a high priority on students’ ability to apply scientific thinking, skills, and understanding to real-world phenomena and problems. Come and learn about new Wisconsin Science Standards, including the 3-dimensions of science learning and how they work together, instructional shifts, differences between science and engineering, and how phenomena help to link science and engineering. Participants will also explore the impact of an integrated STEM education approach to provide deeper learning across the curriculum.

Learning Outcomes will be:

  • Understand the WSS.
  • Understand how the 3 dimensions of the WSS work together to create a holistic approach to science as a discipline.
  • Understand the difference between science and engineering as it relates to the WSS.
  • Recognize how phenomena help to link science and engineering.
