The science curriculum is designed to encourage inquiry. Students are encouraged to ask questions and find their own answers. They are active participants in hands-on activities and experiments. They develop and sharpen their observing, inferring, hypothesizing, and analyzing skills. Students learn about life, physical, and earth sciences.
Four Smithsonian Science Units:
