Our math, science, and engineering curriculum cultivates a passion for problem solving, a disposition for design, a knack for numbers, and a desire to discover from an early age. Here's what Lower School students are learning:
: First grade students research a dinosaur of their choice and present their findings in the form of a research paper, a 3D model of the creature, and a diorama of the ancient ecosystem.
: The second grade city project is a culmination of a social studies unit about communities. Each class builds its own miniature city, using Human-Centered Design to create solutions to solve real-world problems, learning about social issues, city planning, and the importance of teamwork along the way.
: Third graders incorporate science, art, and computer science as they build waterproof pinhole cameras to study the movement of the sun over time.
Stock Market Project
: Fourth grade students practice fractions, decimals, and percentages while earning "income" in the stock market project.
