Principles of 3-Dimensional Science
The difference between learning to DO science vs. ABOUT science.
Three-Dimensional Learning in science is the difference between learning to DO science vs. ABOUT science. An outcome of the National Research Council’s (NRC) Framework on proficiency in science, the three dimensions integrate science and engineering practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts to create performance-based science and problem-solving experiences. Captain Planet Foundation is committed to building teacher capacity to facilitate Three-Dimensional Science using the environment as a context for learning.
