Science K-12 Curriculum and Resources Information
UCSD #1 K-12 Science Education outlines a broad set of expectations for students in science technology, engineering and art with integration of some math in grades K-5. Grade 6-12 will have a stronger curricular focus in just science with a mixture of the technology, engineering, art and math brought in as appropriate. These three dimensions are: crosscutting concepts that unify the study of science through their common application across science and engineering; scientific and engineering practices; and disciplinary core ideas in the physical sciences, life sciences, and earth and space sciences and for engineering, technology, and the applications of science. The overarching goal is for all high school graduates to have sufficient knowledge of science and engineering to engage in public discussions on science-related issues, be careful consumers of scientific and technical information, and enter the careers of their choice.
