You will explore deep space and intergalactic activities through media and resources found on the Internet. You will have the opportunity to examine and apply the Next Generation Science Standards, as well as the connections between the NGSS and the Common Core, as you develop lessons and activities to enrich your science curriculum. The rich, engaging environment of the online classroom will allow you to connect with other educators as you share resources, lessons and ideas.
