Former Achieve science team members have founded the NextGenScience project at WestEd where they will continue working with educators and partners across the nation to improve the quality of science education. Please visit their website and @NextGenScience to learn more about their work. They will continue to serve as stewards of the NGSS, sharing resources with the field through the nextgenscience.org website, NGSSNow newsletter, and @OfficialNGS.
All students should graduate from high school ready for college, careers, and citizenship.
Within the advanced manufacturing industry, there are a variety of entry-level jobs that pay well and provide opportunities for advancement — jobs for high school graduates with postsecondary training or education but less than a four-year college degree. Individuals who participate in some form of postsecondary training — be it on the job, in a training center or at a community college — are often even better positioned to succeed in the manufacturing sector. Some employers and industries may require specialized training or education beyond a high school diploma. In addition to motor vehicle production, other leading manufacturing industries with good job opportunities include semiconductor and electronic components, aerospace products and parts, and architectural and structural metals.
