The Middle School science program focuses on the principles of the scientific method and the engineering design process using a hands-on approach. Working through a variety of topics and concepts, students make observations of the world around them, ask questions, and test their assumptions while developing the skills of a good scientist. They also develop strong analytical skills and creative problem-solving strategies as they find solutions to the different challenges and issues they investigate. Overall, the science program seeks to inspire active global citizens with an understanding of the world both around us and within us.
