The Next Generation Science Standards have been adopted in Washington state, and one major change is the inclusion of both science and engineering practices as a key focus. This workshop will give informal educators a chance to learn how engineering practices and concepts can be integrated into their current educational offerings to align with the new standards.

The workshop will be co-facilitated by Dr. Ann McMahon, the new Vice President of Science and Education at Pacific Science Center. Ann has worked as an engineer, science coordinator for a large school district, and taught graduate courses to educators in science disciplines. Joining Ann will be Dr. Craig Gabler, Mountain to Harbor LASER Alliance Co-Director, Science Coordinator for Capital Region ESD 113, and member of the Next Generation Science Standards Writing Team, and Dr. Jacob Clark Blickenstaff, LASER Program Director.
