At Lynbrook, we focus on teaching process skills and the nature of science, in addition to grade-level content. Science is a cross-curricular, multidisciplinary field which can help students in all of their learning.
Science Process Skills
- Scientific Knowledge is Tentative
- Nature of facts/Hypotheses/Theories
- Scientific Methods
- Observations and Inferences
- Scientific Error
The science team presents students with authentic, hands-on learning experiences and problems, encouraging them to start each project from a conceptual/planning level, and working their way down to experimentation, implementation, and continued refinement levels.
