Mission NGSS was a blast! 96 Nevada teachers learned how to incorporate Next Generation Science Standards into their classroom through the lens of energy and the environment. We simulated a Mission to Mars and identified basic life support systems in order to survive. This hands-on weekend workshop explored the complexities of energy as it relates to NGSS.
The weekend workshop was offered through a collaboration of Desert Research Institute, Sierra Nevada Journeys, Washoe County School District, RPDP of Northern Nevada, Project Learning Tree, and EnergySmart Education (sponsored by NV Energy and Southwest Gas Corporation), Catamount Fund and NAAEE.
