Science Carl Sagan quoteWelcome to the Science section of STEM and Instructional Resources.  What is science?  Science is both a body of knowledge and a process; however, as Carl Sagan pointed out above, it is much more a way of thinking. It is an exciting process of discovery that allows us to link facts into understanding the natural world!

In order to prepare our students to globally compete outside of the school setting, the Science section of the STEM department is developing STEM interdisciplinary curriculum and resources to provide the necessary connections between the various disciplines.  Students will learn content in context to the topic being studied and not as an isolated curriculum to mimic the outside world.  In STEM careers, workers use science, math, engineering, and technology to solve problems and generate new ideas that lead to new jobs and new industries.
