WHAT A CONFERENCE!
Phenomena Database from NGSS
Scientific phenomena are occurrences in the natural or human-made world that cause one to wonder and ask questions. They do not have to be phenomenal, but should be engaging to students and make them wonder and ask questions or identify a problem to be solved. The key reason for identifying possible phenomenon is to ensure that the learning of science concepts are anchored around something that will engage students (make them wonder and ask questions), whereby they seek accurate, evidence-based explanations for how and why things occur by using the Science and Engineering Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Disciplinary Core Ideas of the Next Generation Science Standards.
This website has been developed in response to a need to help teachers identify grade level appropriate phenomena that could be incorporated into science instruction. #ProjectPhenomena is a collaboration of teacher, industry, university, and community organization leaders who want to help students engage in relevant, engaging, and meaningful phenomena as part of science process.
