NGSS/Common Core Curriculum Content Standards

The Hiller Aviation Museum’s hands-on programming is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards adopted by the California Department of Education in September 2013.  Math-related content is aligned with the California Common Core State Standards in Mathematics adopted in August 2010.
