Lower School Science

Science is explored through active hands-on, inquiry-based investigations and interactive experiences designed to stimulate scientific curiosity and develop critical thinking skills. Students are inspired to think, create, tinker, design, innovate, make, solve and share. Instruction that is grounded in the most current best practices provides experiences for students that help them deeply understand core scientific concepts, understand the scientific process of developing and testing ideas, and arm them with a greater ability to evaluate scientific evidence. Through exploration of physical, life and earth sciences, students ask questions, analyze and evaluate information and draw conclusions.
