ScienceDays Education Philosophy
According to the National Science
Education Standards, there are three systems that influence
science education: government, private sector, and national
organizations and societies. As a nonprofit organization aimed to
enhance science education, the lesson plans used by ScienceDays
mentors comply with National Science Standards.
The National Standards specify
that from elementary school through high school, students should
develop understanding of these concepts and processes: 1)
systems, order and organization, 2) evidence, models, and
explanation, 3) constancy, change, and measurement, 4) evolution
and equilibrium, and 5) form and function.
The other categories in the
National Standards include the following.
1) Science as inquiry
2) Physical science
3) Life science
4) Earth and space science
5) Science and technology
6) Science in personal and social perspective
7) History and nature of science
Benchmarks for measuring
achievement differ by grade levels. ScienceDays lesson plans are
divided into categories that answer to one or more Standards. Our
- Physics and electricity
- Geology and planetary science
- Biology and health
- Chemical and physical science
The foundation to all ScienceDays lesson plans is to, above all,
allow students to view science as inquiry and inspire curiosity
for the subject matter.
