Ask Matt - NGSS science education advice from an expert

Green Ninja (

Science education is going through a big transition right now as schools throughout the country have adopted the Next Generation Science Standards. These new standards represent a large shift in how science will be taught, and teachers have good questions about how these standards will affect their classrooms. Our host (Eugene Cordero - climate scientist and founder of Green Ninja - science education provider) talks with Matt d'Alessio, science education expert and author of the 2016 California Science Framework for NGSS. Matt has dedicated over 20 years of his life to science education both as a high school science teacher and a distinguished university professor. In this podcast, Eugene asks Matt various questions about science education, NGSS, and the environment in a friendly and easygoing conversational style that is designed to be helpful to teachers.
