DREAM's science program is founded on the belief that students learn science best by doing science.
The program aims to:
- Develop students’ science literacy and experiences
- Create stronger logical reasoning skills in students
- Further integrate science into other content areas such as reading, writing and mathematics
- Emphasize scientific understandings to promote wise nutritional and fitness decisions
To make science even more exciting for our students, DREAM employs the Full Option Science System (FOSS) from Delta Education. FOSS believes the best way for students to appreciate the scientific enterprise, learn important scientific concepts and develop the ability to think critically is to actively construct ideas through their own inquiries, investigations and analyses. The FOSS program was created to engage students in these processes as they explore the natural world. Teachers and students do science together when they open the FOSS kits, engaging in scientific discoveries that lead to a deeper understanding of the natural world.
