Science Lessons

Our curriculum is rooted in engineering as well as physical, earth and space, and life science, and the scientific principles and processes that span all sciences.  Students collect, interpret, and analyze data then construct arguments from this evidence. Students work collaboratively to build and use models to describe scientific phenomena and solve real world design problems.

physical science

Through outstanding, interactive, hands-on lessons, students learn about the structure and properties of matter. They'll have the opportunity to experience chemical properties and reactions, as well as forces of motion and their interactions. There are also classes on energy conservation and energy transfer.

life science

Using different experiential lessons, students explore the structure and processes of organisms, as well as investigate matter and energy transfer in organisms and ecosystems. The natural outdoor laboratory is perfect for studying cause and effect relationships in ecosystems and adaptations and species diversity.

earth and space science

Our student scientists investigate the scale and properties of objects in the solar system, as well as how the earth's history was shaped by geologic processes. They also explore the interconnectivity of earth's spheres, and our human impacts on earth and its resources.

engineering

This fun and hands-on section explores different engineering processes, including solving a design problem within given criteria and constraints. Students will also evaluate the integrity of multiple design solutions, control variables, and analyze the results from different tests.
