Science

Science literacy helps us understand and shape our daily lives. It helps us as we interact with our environment, asking questions and seeking answers.

Literacy in science, however, is much more than just reading and writing. It involves understanding the impact science has on our world and provides an opportunity to debate issues through written, oral or visual presentations. This gives students opportunities to read, write, defend and communicate their findings in meaningful ways, while helping raise science awareness.

By doing labs every 8 days and combining active, hands-on/minds-on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) learning experiences with research and problem-solving opportunities, we’re helping the students at Fairfield Prep build an understanding of what it means to know science and apply it to living. Doing science develops our ability to ask questions, collect information, organize and test our ideas, problem-solve and apply what we learn. Even more, science offers a powerful platform for building confidence, developing communication skills and making sense of the world around us – a world that is increasingly shaped by science and technology.
