This is the 24th year of ExploraVision! This year we reflected on the success of the program, and made meaningful changes that we believe will make the program an effective educational tool for the next 20 years.
The ExploraVision competition will now offer students more of the scientific and engineering learning experiences that are central to the Next Generation Science Standards. ExploraVision has always been proud of representing excellence in science education. Not surprisingly, many of our program’s key features already reflect the goals of the Next Generation Science Standards. The few changes we’re making now will deepen the connection to NGSS, which we feel is important for several reasons:
Restructuring the competition to align more closely with the Next Generation Science Standards will help us to celebrate ExploraVision’s past as we set new goals for an even brighter future! We are proud that ExploraVision will offer students learning experiences central to the Next Generation Science Standards.
