Through investigation Middle School students develop and utilize a scientific vocabulary and build on skills learned in the Lower School as they classify, compare and contrast, construct models and express ideas creatively. They make observations, examine and interpret data, keep systematic records, measure in the metric system, manipulate information mathematically and use scientific tools. In the process, students become well-grounded in independent research, collaborative problem solving and critical thinking.
