SAGES: A New Approach to Science Education

Commitment by

Captain Planet Foundation

In 2013, Captain Planet Foundation (CPF), in partnership with the Georgia Department of Education, committed to creating a new approach to science education called SAGES (Science for All Generations through Environmental Stewardship). Over the next three years, 26 states and the District of Columbia will need curriculum to implement new national science standards, called the Next Generation Science Standards. This commitment will provide teachers with both an innovative K-12 curriculum and the tools necessary to support these standards and engage students in discovering of the wonders of our natural world, learning science through environmental stewardship projects, and solving real-world problems by applying knowledge and creativity learned in the classroom. This commitment will serve to transform science education in Georgia and, potentially across the nation.
