Science is an important part of our daily curriculum. Our science lab is open all year and goes hand in hand with the California Science Curriculum. The lab is equipped with Foss Kit hands-on materials, books, and reproducibles. We also have a science lab aide who helps prep experiments, assists teachers during their lab, and provides requested materials for each lesson.
Each grade level and classroom has a designated time allocated each week for the students to use the lab and partake in hands on activities. The science lab curriculum ties into our garden program allowing students to hypothesize, predict, and observe on a weekly basis.
Here at Emelita we strive to create meaningful activities where students engage in hands-on, minds-on experiences each and every week. The science lab incorporates components of engineering and technology allowing students to create and test their creations.
If you are interested in donating materials, science supplies, research books or children’s experiment kits please talk to the science lab aide. The success of the science program is dependent on up-to-date supplies, materials, and new engaging activities to get our students thinking like scientists!
