Teaching K-12 Science and Engineering During a Crisis

From the Board on Science Education

Watch the video:

The COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in widespread and ongoing changes to how the K-12 education system functions, including disruptions to science teaching and learning environments. The guide "Teaching K-12 Science and Engineering During a Crisis" from the Board on Science Education describes what high-quality science and engineering education can look like during this time of great uncertainty. The publication includes guidance—with an emphasis on the needs of district science supervisors, curriculum leads, and instructional coaches—about how K-12 science and engineering learning experiences can:

  • function during disruptions to education systems;
  • adapt as needed to support students and their families dealing with ongoing changes to instructional and home environments; and
  • remain at high quality or even increase in quality, even if time for instruction is reduced this year.

The guide and video is based on reports from the National Academies that focus on teaching science and engineering in grades K-12. It also incorporates input and examples from educators across the country.
