Science Resources

Resources for the CALIFORNIA SCIENCE TEST (CAST) from the CCCOE:

Our CCCOE STEAM Coordinator made a very helpful padlet with many resources about the CAST. This raises the stake for NGSS teaching and implementation at all grade levels, as the test builds on skills, content and experiences that are provided to students K-12.
