Engineer Pius Wong speaks with teacher Rachel Fahrig about educational standards, including NGSS and Common Core. We cover what they mean, the various strong opinions about them, and how they might broadly affect K12 engineering courses. Rachel is a specialist in instructional support for a high school engineering curriculum that is produced by the University of Texas at Austin, and that is taught to high school students across the country.
