State and National Standards
As an education center, our primary goal has always been to provide educational programming that helps students gain an understanding of various marine science concepts. Our programs touch on many of the Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut science standards, and as a new addition, they also touch on the Next Generation Science Standards. Because our programs fit nicely into the grade standards set by the states and by the nation, they can be used as an exciting tool to augment your existing curriculum.
To make it easier for you to see how our programs can fit into your curriculum, we have provided a table that will show you how each of our programs relate to the different standards. If there is a specific standard or topic that you would like for us to touch on that you do not see listed, give us a call. We want to work with you to achieve your educational goals.
For those teachers using FOSS kits, we are currently working on creating in-classes and field trips that go along with your programs. If you’re using one of those and would like to have us in as a complement to the program, let us know and we’d be happy to make it work!
