Preparing our students for the 21st Century - and jobs that have yet to be created
Understanding how science impacts our daily lives is an essential part of understanding the world around us. The application of science through technology, engineering, and mathematics is called STEM. Careers in STEM make up the largest growing employment fields in the world. Because of this, it is imperative that our students have basic foundations in Science, and experiences in STEM.
For students to have these experiences, labs and hands-on activities are an essential part of the curriculum. In order to ensure this takes place, our teachers are developing engaging lessons through the 5E (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate) Process. This process focuses on inquiry and student-centered learning, allowing students the opportunity to discover laws and theories consistent with observations.
