scienceWe love science in Room 28!

Our science program is inquiry based.  An old adage states:  "Tell me and I forget, show me and I remember, involve me and I understand."  The last part of this statement is the essence of inquiry-based learning.  All activites are hands-on and directly tied to state science standards.
