Science is an integral part of the intellectual development of a child. Interest in science begins with attitudes and values established in the earliest years through daily experiences. Students graduating from high school must have a foundation in scientific knowledge and evidence based reasoning.
What kinds of Science opportunities do we need to provide for our students to be successful in accomplishing this vision?
