FUSE: Next Generation

Date Added: 

April 1, 2014
FUSE: Next Generation Report

This brief by TASC, Every Hour Counts and ORGE Innovation Consulting presents a strategy to create real-world science learning experiences for kids that integrate Next Generation Science Standards with social and emotional learning experiences. Leveraging external experts, community integration and project-based learning, the model builds flexible science programs in both formal and informal settings. While intended for use by New York, Boston and Providence, the Frontiers in Urban Science (FUSE) initiative cities, this brief could be useful to STEM educators, community partners and district leaders nationwide who are forging new paths to expand access to STEM learning and opportunities.

This strategy employs cross-cutting concepts, activities to build social and emotional competencies, science-rich environments and diverse bodies of educators in an effort to positively impact student outcomes. To build successful learning experiences, the model endeavors to marry auxiliary support systems--like technology, public support systems, youth development opportunities, assessment tools and policy implementation--into a cohesive unit. 

TASC and Every Hour Counts received support for this brief, and the design session on which it was based, from the Noyce Foundation.
