Hands on Science

The science curriculum promotes children’s natural curiosity about the world around them. In order for students to learn science they must do science.

Units and themes are designed and implemented to help students ask questions and construct meaning as they work to discover answers.

Students are encouraged to design investigations, predict, classify, observe, describe, infer, and hypothesize which all lead to the scientific method and more systematic interpretations.

Through this process students enrich their own insights and perceptions about how science impacts today’s modern life. Physical, earth and life sciences are explored using a hands-on, inquiry based approach both in and out of the classroom as well as in the Science Technology Center.
