Science


Objectives

Science is an often neglected subject, especially in elementary school. In the early grades, the controversy continues surrounding the best method to teach science.

Our key objective is to  

  • stimulate interest and a love for Science thru hands-on experiments and field trips
  • introduce important Scientific concepts
  • develop an interest in amazing scientific discoveries to stimulate their critical thinking 
  • provide satisfaction, joy, and thrill of meeting challenges



Approach

We have developed
 a year-long  Science program in each course to get our Explorers excited in Science with fun-filled, hands-on experience. GATE Students & Parent Coaches meet once every week for an hour to enrich GATE student's scientific discoveries with advanced hands-on experiments and field trips.
