Curriculum

Inquiry-based

SciTech Kids’ curriculum brings science to life through a student-centered approach that uses the power of inquiry and play to create captivating science experiences. In each class, children are introduced to a topic, ask questions, and do a hands-on activity that teaches science in a fun, interactive manner. 

Our curriculum covers various branches of science including biology, chemistry, physics, paleontology, forensics, electronics, ecology, botany, and astronomy.  SciTech Kids also integrates science with language arts, geography, art, design, and music. SciTech Kids’ curriculum is centered around the following themes:

Integrated

Our carefully designed curriculum was developed by a team of science educators and with the help of scientists, researchers, and early childhood specialists.  The SciTech Method is an innovative approach to science education that integrates inquiry-based learning, project-based learning and integrated learning into a dynamic and cohesive framework.  Led by our highly trained instructors, classes focus not only on the science content and process but also on the real world applications of science. While experimenting or completing a project, students develop skills that enable them to think critically and problem-solve.

Invention-focused

With an emphasis on inquiry, our kids instinctively want to invent while they discover. Our kids have the opportunity to meet/interact with real life every day inventors/innovators and are dazzled by their intelligence and creativity. Our students experience first hand how to take an invention from imagination to reality and understand the process and timelines associated with such. This exposure sparks the creativity of future kid inventors and encourages them to play, tinker, and test out construction toys, kits, gadgets, and robots.

Scientific Literacy

Our students become scientifically literate.  As they begin to understand the scientific world around them, they can appreciate topics such as global warming, earthquakes, cancer, climate changes, cloning, and genetically engineered food—all issues that directly affect their lives.  

“Scientific literacy helps us understand and enjoy the world around us.” –Kim Magloire
