The scientific method, rational, critical thinking and data manipulation are all integral parts of the Akiva science program, taught to all students by a science specialist at the school.
There are 3 main competencies in science and technology which are covered through 3 major themes explored during the school year:
- the material world
- Earth and space
- the living world
These three major themes are divided into various sub-themes and taught to the different grades with age appropriate content to engage students and make them start thinking about their world around them from a scientific perspective.
In cycle 1, students explore science and technology through classroom materials and discussions.
In cycle 2 and 3, our science specialist introduces sciences experiments and activities to encourage our students to question and further explore specific topics in the science curriculum.
