Students learn to ask questions and explore the world while designing, building, and testing innovative solutions to real world problems. In preparation for future STEM and science courses, students will be taught how to identify problem criteria and constraints, model and test prototypes, observe (both qualitatively and quantitatively) and record, create and test hypotheses, and develop evidence-based explanations.
