RISE helps children build a strong foundation for STE learning experiences that they will meet when they enter K-12 schooling. RISE engages children and their teachers with many of the same science and engineering practices, core ideas, and cross-cutting concepts that are outlined in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
“RISE focuses on preschool teachers and children pursuing explanations for how the world works (science-S) and solutions to problems (technology and engineering–T & E). ”
