The Nebraska Department of Education says proposed Science Standards are a change in thinking.
The department is in the process of updating the standards right now.
What’s proposed focuses more on asking students to “think like a scientist” rather than memorize content.
State education leaders say the standards were written by 50 science educators from across Nebraska.
Now, they’re asking the public to weigh in on a survey. Questions ask you if you’re a member of the public, an educator, parent, student or college representative.
Sara Cooper, with the Nebraska Department of Education, said a big difference is that science content and analyst and research would no longer be separate standards.
