Engage all students in scientific and engineering experiences that allow them to articulate their questions and refine their explanations about phenomena of the world around them.



Create opportunities for all students to explore the nature of science,  strengthen math skills through integration, become scientifically and environmentally literate individuals who apply the science and engineering practices, have a sense of wonder and desire to learn about science beyond the classroom.



Learning happens through doing science

Questions drive inquiry and foster a deep understanding

Explanations are evidence based

Science concepts are contextualized

Classroom collaboration fosters community connection

Experiences in science lead to language development

Mastery is multifaceted

Equitable access encourages participation in science


"Be patient, don't think you can walk in and do all NGSS... Pick one element or a few and do them well. We don't have high-stakes testing staring us down. So let's focus on teaching and teachers..... Right now, worry about good science."
