Science



The middle school science curriculum is an inquiry and Project Based Learning (PBL) program that focuses on building 21st century skills, ethical thinking, a passion for science, and a deep understanding of the scientific method. PBL is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge. Curriculum is organized around authentic real world driving questions that lead students to discover answers through innovation, experimentation, and hands-on activities. A variety of scientific disciplines are included in each driving question framing one of the PBL units. This approach allows for a spiraling of content throughout the four year science program.
