Science

The focus of each class will vary based on the students’ level. We get students thinking about how and why things work the way they do, how technology and products have changed over time, or what might happen in a certain experiment. Students will focus on asking scientific questions and defining problems, developing and using models, planning and carrying out investigations, analyzing and interpreting data, using mathematics and computational thinking, constructing explanations and designing solutions, engaging in argument from evidence, and obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information.
