The Senior STEM course will provide a framework for authentic scientific research.  Students will pursue authentic questions, some of which originate from them; make sense of their observations through scientific practices; and situate their understandings within the larger context of core ideas of science and engineering.

 

Big Ideas:

  1. Asking questions and defining problems.
  2. Developing and using models.
  3. Planning and carrying out investigations.
  4. Analyzing and interpreting data.
  5. Using mathematics and computational thinking.
  6. Constructing explanations and designing solutions.
  7. Engaging in argument from evidence.
  8. Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information.
