Our award-winning STEM program is designed to engage students in a relevant and exciting curriculum that breaks down the walls between science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The topics and content are presented through a project-based and hands-on approach with a purposeful sequence of lessons and skill development. Students are encouraged to take risks, persevere, adapt, create, and innovate in each class.
Students explore science both in the classroom and the Early Childhood Science Lab. Units of exploration include the study of weather, plants, animals, the earth, human growth, wellness, light, color, five senses, seasons/weather, human growth, animals, nutrition, plants, sea life, insects, sinking and floating, ecology, caring for the environment, balancing and weight, magnets, electricity, and the rock cycle. The curriculum is created and developed under the guidance of the Smithsonian Institute and the National Science Resources Center.
