Students live in a world of rapid scientific and technological change, so it is imperative that science instruction help them to cope with these changes. Our science program enables students to understand and engage in scientific inquiry, develop positive attitudes toward the scientific enterprise and to make decisions that are based on evidence and reflect a thorough understanding of the relationships between science, technology, and society.
The study of life science, earth science, and physical science enables students to:
- describe the relationship between the physical universe and the
living environment and to make good decisions concerning this
- describe the relationship between structure and function of
organisms and their interaction with one another.
- use the scientific method, scientific ideas, and scientific knowledge
to explore the world around them.
Students learn to make sense of the concepts presented to them using observation, measurement, prediction, estimation, experimenting, classification, hypothesizing, comparing variables, interpreting data, gathering evidence, inferring, organizing data, developing models, comparing/contrasting, and finding likeness or difference.
