California's public school students get tested according to new science standards for the first time this month. The “Next Generation Science Standards” mark a shift away from rote memorization toward hands-on projects, interpreting data and recognizing scientific concepts across disciplines. In a special broadcast from The Exploratorium, we'll hear how the new science standards are changing what goes on in the classroom and what the challenges are to implementation.

Guests:

Rob Semper, executive associate director and director of Program, Exploratorium; member, National STEM Education Advisory Panel

Jessica Parker, director of teaching and learning, Exploratorium

Lauren Brown, science teacher, Madison Park Academy in Oakland

Jill Tucker, K-12 education reporter, San Francisco Chronicle
