Kopernik Observatory and Science Center
The Kopernik Observatory & Science Center, perched atop a 1750 foot hill in Vestal, 13 miles Southwest of Binghamton, NY, has been the best-sited and best equipped public observatory in the Northeast United States for over 40 years. It offers a wide range of programs, both on-site and in-school programs that provide hands-on, interactive activities designed to enhance the science and engineering curriculum being taught in school.
NGSS – Next Generation Science Standard
As implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is about to be rolled out, educators at Kopernik have reviewed and revised the course offerings to better align them to the new standards. To that end, Kopernik has added some new courses and have updated others. The Learning Standards for Science have been re-stated and are now listed by the NGSS Grade Level Performance Expectations in the Disciplinary Core Domains. PS stands for the Physical Sciences. LS stands for the Life Sciences. ESS stands for the Earth and Space Sciences. ETS stands for the Engineering, Technology and Application of Science.
