Science is Fun.jpg


Inquire, Inspire, Invent

Approach

We believe children learn best when they are inquisitive, and we want to provide our students with experiences which build on their interest and stimulate their curiosity about the environment.

As engaged learners, students need to develop their skills and attitudes necessary for scientific inquiry and to actively inquire as learners.
