Introduction

National Science League

NSL was founded in 1980 by Joseph Quartaro and Henry Hull, two math coaches with more than 30 years of teaching experience. They launched this challenge in conjunction with the U.S. national policy on science education, based on the experience of CML, and with a number of science teachers with extensive teaching experience. This challenge is align with NGSS (Next Generation Science Standard) system, offering a plantform for students to challenge themselves. NSL aims to enhance students interests in further exploration of science through lively questions and encourages students to think about applying STEM interdisciplinary knowledge to solve problems in real-life.

Since 2021 , NSL has reached a strategic cooperation with ASDAN China to become the Organizing Committee of NSL in China and recommend this excellence science education resource to Chinese students.
