NESS’s student-centered, inquiry-based programs – all rooted in the growth mindset – will engage your students in their own learning through our innovative, real-world experiences that are aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). NESS helps teachers meet the standards by engaging students and creating opportunities for them to demonstrate their thinking and learning. The NGSS and Ocean Literacy Principles enable students to view learning as an interrelated world of inquiry and phenomena rather than a static set of disciplines. NESS’s ocean adventure education programs provide inquiry-based STEM classroom and field expeditions to explore real-world problems.
