STEM

Kindergarten students receive instruction in science through their weekly thematic units. First – sixth grade students will be engaging in hands-on STEM explorations and activities using Pitsco Education curriculum. Through a variety of inquiry-based activities and projects, students will explore and enhance their skills in life science, Earth science, physical science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Pitsco Education’s curriculum is linked to the current standards developed by various national, state, and local science, math, and technology educational organizations. With this hands-on, student-centered, cooperative-learning system, we will create an atmosphere that is engaging, informative, and enjoyable for students.
