|An extraordinary scientist possesses not only intellectual curiosity, and basic understanding of scientific phenomena, but an overall need to question and explore. These are some of the practices that are fostered in the middle school science program.
Each grade offers a basic introduction to the sciences, and proceeds to highlight Earth science, physics, and life science, depending on the grade level. Presentation of concepts includes myriad strategies, in an effort to connect with different learning styles. In addition, specialty projects allow each individual student to elaborate on and develop assigned topics while integrating their particular talents, and delving into their own sets of personal inquiry. Interactive labs provide hands on opportunities, and teacher demonstrations spark interest in questions of the natural world that appeal to the scientist in us all.
