Welcome to ESD 105's
Educational Service District 105 supports the instructional shifts and systemic changes necessary so that all students engage in the vision for equitable science teaching and learning called for in "A Framework for K-12 Science Education" and reflected in the Next Generation Science Standards.
To achieve our vision, Educational Service District 105 supports school district leaders and teachers of science in shifting to instructional practices that empowers students to see themselves as scientists and engineers, as knowers of big science ideas and solvers of engaging and relevant problems.
"Equity in science education requires that all students are provided with equitable opportunities to learn science and become engaged in science and engineering practices; with access to quality space, equipment, and teachers to support and motivate that learning and engagement; and adequate time spent on science. In addition, the issue of connecting to students’ interests and experiences is particularly important for broadening participation in science."
