Exploding things in the parking lot, dropping eggs from the second floor, growing and experimenting with plants and testing erosion with dirt are just a few examples of the hands-on learning that is the basis for our program. The real world science applications and Next Generation Science Standards are applied through energetic, creative, project-based, collaborative engineering activities. Students engage in the scientific method and keep detailed notes while writing observations in journals. We value curiosity, exploration, mistakes, and student-led inquiry.
Students explore Earth Science (Grade 6), Life Science (Grade 7), and Physical Science (Grade 8). This interdisciplinary program combines ecology, biology, physiology, chemistry, and physics.
