Utah's New Science (SEEd) Standards


Utah is getting new Science Standards!  They are called Science with Engineering Education Standards (SEEd).  

Our new SEEd Standards for Grade 6-8 have been adopted by the Utah State Board of Education.  To see them click here.



*The new SEEd Standards incorporate 3 Dimensional Science, which is

1. Crosscutting Concepts

2. Science and Engineering Practices

3. Disciplinary Core Ideas
