The purpose of the CNMI Public School System’s Science program is to actively engage all students in the scientific learning process that is rich in content and embedded in practice. The Next Generation Science Standards reflect our vision of science literacy by being taught in a progressive manner from Kindergarten to 12th grade and immersing students in the fields of life, earth, space, and physical sciences, with engineering concepts interweaved throughout. Students become responsible for their own learning path to solve challenging problems, generate innovations and communicate creative ideas which ultimately prepares our students to be college and career ready.
