The Science department will pilot Savvas ElevateScience Curriculum. It is a research based science curriculum focused on the inquiry process. Elevate Science is developed upon on problem solving, critical thinking, and the Next Generation Science performance expectations.
Key components of Elevate Science are:
- Make sense of phenomena
- Design solutions to real-world problems
- Practice scientifict inquiry
Students will engage in science and engineering opportunities while interacting with hands on labls, videos, and interactivities. They will engage in hands on, minds on inquiry through out the curricular process. Every topic across each grade level, begins with a topic opener. The integration of engineering design, aligned to the next gen. standards to develop students' problem solving skills and build real-world societal and environmental connections.
