Welcome to the

3D Science Café

In 2016, a group of like-minded individuals from New York's North Country region gathered together to bring NY's version of the Next Generation Science Standards into our pK-12 classrooms.

The North Country 3D Science Café blog was created to house resources such as example lessons and unit planning templates. The 3D Science Café Team offers PD in 3-dimensional teaching and learning congruent with NYSSLS and NGSS*.

We believe in professional learning opportunities FOR teachers, BY teachers.
