Standards-Aligned Curriculum

Our STEAM Academy instructors, Heidi DuPuis and Casey Vreeken, align each lesson with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which have been adopted not only by our state of Washington but by the majority of states in the U.S. These are the same standards the public schools in Washington use - in short, they identify concepts to be taught at each grade level. In elementary school, this means giving students enough information to prepare them for a more in-depth look at these topics when they reach middle school.
