Silvia School Focus: Science, Technology, Engineering & Math
At the Silvia School, students participate in STEM classes to further their learning in science. Our teachers have been working on revamping the science curriculum so that it meets the current NGSS standards that have been in place in January. In the spring of 2016, Kindergarteners learned about solids, liquids, and gases and the way in which a mixture changes depending on the temperature. The students made ice cream to demonstrate how easily and delicious things can be. First grade students had the opportunity to investigate light and sound and developing their scientific vocabulary on how light moves.
