Summary: 

Wyoming adopted new science standards in 2016.

Body: 

The mission of science education is to help young people develop the ability to reason, think creatively, make responsible decisions, and solve problems. Students do more than acquire knowledge; they work toward understanding and making sense of the world around them. They must process, apply, and effectively communicate scientific knowledge to become scientifically literate citizens. Scientific literacy is of critical importance for the United States to participate productively in an increasingly competitive technological society.
