Title Energy Skate Park-NGSS aligned HS
Description Summer of 2014, a work group was formed to write lessons that align with both PhET design and facilitation principles and Next Generation Science Standards. The work group wrote a design template and some lessons. This particular example has a student handout that is longer than PhET research would say is ideal, but is a good demonstration of the process of aligning both PhET and NGSS. This lesson will undergo review, but it seems worth sharing.
