Our science curriculum encompass concept formation and processes expressed in behavioral objectives. Concept formation is an organized system of information. Process is a method of learning involving hypothesizing, observing, classifying, measuring, predicting, inferring, collecting and analyzing data in order to arrive at valid conclusions and generalizations. This scientific inquiry is basic to rigorous science instruction. We also place a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), integrating course curriculum.
We believe students learn best when they are involved in the process skills-when they participate. Processes are related to subject matter and make it meaningful. As students begin to use the inquiry method, it will be necessary for the teacher to explain the many phases of today’s changing world in an effort to accomplish the major goal of science education – to produce tomorrow’s problem-solving citizens. In a Catholic school, this goal is accomplished in the context of the Catholic Philosophy of Science education. Here science is recognized as the Wisdom of God in creation and is directed to the benefit of humankind for the fulfillment of God’s plan.
