Science and Engineering for Grades 6-12:
Investigation and Design at the Center

Associate Professor Anne Egger is on the Board on Science Education of The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, and this committee has just released a new concensus report that describes evidence-based ways that teaching and learning can shift toward science investigations and engineering design to help realize a new vision in the classroom. The report provides guidance for teachers, administrators, providers of professional development, and creators of instructional materials on how to support students and teachers as they learn and instruct in this way.

More information regarding the report, including a summary and the complete text, are available at The National Academies site
