Science & STEAM

 

Science Lab

 

All students in grades K-6 have the opportunity to expand the scientific lessons they learn in the classroom through the hands-on science lab. This lab time, in conjunction with the content being learned in each grade level, allows students the opportunity to interact with science in a fun and engaging way.

 

This year in the Science Lab students will be learning all about STEAM-Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math!

 

This year many new engineering projects along with the new Next Generation Science Standards will be integrated into each grade level's curriculum.
