Completed in April 2013, the Next Generation Science Standards are the result of a collaborative effort between the National Research Council, the National Science Teachers Association, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and Achieve. They began by developing the Framework for K-12 Science Education, which outlined the science concepts students in K-12 should know. Design teams were created in four areas: engineering, life science, earth/space science, and physical science. The draft they created was offered to the public for comment in 2010, and the revised, final version was released one year later.

My name is Marie Nubia-Feliciano, and I am a student in the College of Educational Studies PhD program at Chapman University. am now in the final stages of my Ph.D. in Education, with an emphasis in Curricular and Cultural Studies at Chapman University. My dissertation focuses on the educational experiences of Afro-Borinqueñas (Puerto Rican women), and compares their experiences in the U.S. mainland and on the island of Puerto Rico. As an Afro-Borinqueña myself, having been born to Puerto Rican parents on the island of Vieques, the research is very personal and as such, I feel an obligation to provide a place and space where we can share our experiences in college.
