This program is designed to spark students' curiosity about science. It is geared toward students who need a little push to try new things.
We live in Puget Sound, but what does that mean? How do we get our drinkable water? What happens to the water on the streets when it rains? In this 14-week session, we will explore water as our main topic. We will dive into the water cycle and learn what a watershed is. In addition, we will investigate the QAE Playground while using our observation skills. The playground is the ideal outdoor classroom to inspire children to ask questions.
The exploring science program uses the project base learning approach as students will use their natural curiosity to answer questions driven by their own interests.
Exploring Science is a fun way to inspire and promote science education. When children investigate their own questions, it creates ownership and gives them self-confidence. Asking questions increases their critical thinking and analytical skills. Sharing their findings improves their communications skills and builds a sense of community.
Join the program, discover the scientist within you and have fun!
