A basic understanding of the areas of ecology, earth, life, physical, and health science is the goal of the science program. The hands-on nature of the program ensures a child-centered approach that stresses following directions, making predictions, assessing results, and drawing conclusions. There are two main focuses of the program: learning to problem-solve by using available resources and testing theories through hands-on activities and laboratory investigation.
In the Lower and Upper School labs, students have a wide variety of tools and equipment available, which often incorporates skills from the areas of reading, writing and math. Students move at a challenging pace and are encouraged to develop their own interests in the areas of science and technology. Science specialists are the core of our science instruction.
