Observing our world
The goal of Poly’s Lower School science program is to develop an understanding and love of science through hands-on learning in a safe and stimulating environment based on a curriculum that includes life, physical, and earth science on a yearly basis. We strive to develop in students an awareness of and a delight in the natural and physical world, as well as an overall sense of responsibility. The curriculum is designed to provide knowledge of the methods and tools of science necessary for the process of scientific inquiry. Based on an experiential model, through a hands-on, minds-on direct approach, students are encouraged to try various solutions to encountered problems, ask thoughtful questions and draw conclusions based on observations, experiments, and activities directly experienced while guided by the teacher.
