Why Science?

Science is all around us. It is interwoven throughout every moment of our lives and at its heart is wonder. Wonder; the desire to observe and understand what we perceive has fueled scientific inquiry and innovation since the beginning of time. Young children, with their proclivity to question and explore the world around them are natural wonderers and scientists, and early education in the sciences encourages and strengthens this sense of wonder. The elementary years provide the optimal window to immerse children in inquiry-based learning and cultivate this scientific mindset.
