Middle and high school STEM educators and administrators may want to check out Science and Engineering for Grades 6-12, a consensus study report published by the National Academies Press in 2019. Newer STEM education structures like the Next Generation Science Standards aim to foster an environment where students learn by doing and engage more deeply with the content. In accordance with this philosophy, this peer-reviewed report focuses on incorporating science investigation and engineering design into STEM curricula and classroom practices. It includes an evidence-based discussion of ways to engage today's students in an approach centered on investigation and design, guidance for teachers and administrators on supporting students' learning, suggestions for creating and implementing curricular material, and much more. Those interested can read the full 312-page report online, or download it as a PDF for free at the above link; it is also available to purchase in hard copy and as an eBook. In addition to the report itself, readers will also find an interactive infographic, a short video introduction, and two recorded webinars under the Resources tab.
