Welcome to BaySci

Led by the Lawrence Hall of Science, Exploratorium, and Inverness Research, BaySci is a coordinated effort by science education leaders, Science-rich Education Institutions (SREIs), districts, schools, and teachers to systematically enhance the quantity and quality of K-12 science teaching and learning in districts and schools.

BaySci is aimed at improving the likelihood that every student in BaySci districts will encounter high quality science experiences within a national and state context surrounding the implementation and convergence of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

The work of BaySci ensures that our partners see NGSS and the Common Core are not just aligned, but convergent, and that implementing both are essential to curricular and intellectual coherence in our education system.
