Science is about sparking a desire to learn more: Explore...Question...Discover!
Horace W. Porter’s science curriculum is based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and promotes the investigation of real-world phenomena. Student scientists are encouraged to develop inquiring minds and a curiosity about the natural world around them. As they discover scientific concepts and develop engineering practices they are guided to design and test solutions through the inquiry process. A variety of programming is used to support this engaging curriculum.
