Science & Technology
Cycle two and three students (Grades 3 to 6) receive three forty-five-minute periods dedicated (one each) to Science, Technology and Robotics. Topics concerning Earth and Space, the Material World and Living Things are all integrated within the curriculum and the three disciplines are taught in an integrated manner.
Students are introduced to the appropriate use of computers and iPads, microscopes, balance scales, and other tools within their scientific explorations.
Integration of Technology at School
We believe that technology offers tremendous opportunities for learning, infinitely expands the walls of the classroom, and makes available wonderful resources that our students can and should take advantage of. We support and encourage the use of technology for learning and regularly design learning tasks to that end. We continuously work to maintain and update appropriate equipment. At the same time, we are fully aware of the dangers of unlimited and unsupervised access to technology and the internet. In cooperation with parents and with their support, our school works to educate our children on the healthy use of these resources, shares information and resources with parents, and diligently pursues disciplinary measures to correct abuses in this area.
