“The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.”
-Sir William Lawrence Bragg- Physicist, Chemist and Mathmatician
Science is the active study of the natural and man-made world, including processes, structures, designs, and systems. Being “scientific” involves being curious, asking how things happen and learning how to find the answers. Our students use science and engineering practices while learning core ideas in the disciplines of physical science, life science, and Earth and space science. Scientifically literate youth can understand basic science concepts, use skills for doing scientific investigations, solve technical problems, and design technologies for today’s evolving world.
In the elementary grades, we partner with the Science Museum of Minnesota to integrate hands-on curriculum, funded by Engineering Is Elementary, into the IB units of inquiry.
