Episode 110 – An Elementary Journey to the NGSS


Eric Cromwell

Elementary science has been on our minds recently.  So it is fitting that our guest this week has been working hard helping elementary teachers tackle the Next Generation Science Standards.  As Coordinator for Elementary Science in Baltimore County Schools, Eric Cromwell has the task of moving a large number of schools and teachers into an NGSS based curriculum.  Listen to the show to hear of Eric’s experience in this transition as we discuss how elementary schools can embrace the NGSS.

  • Great podcast! I’ve been doing NGSS lessons since September. My students especially love being engineers. I’ll have to look into the EIE Bee Pollinator lessons that you referred to. Thank you for sharing your experiences!
