Our commitment to innovative educational opportunities is showcased in our Science Lab. This fully-equipped space has been designed with young learners in mind. All students visit the Science Lab twice each week to receive hands-on training in sharpening their science skills: measurement, data gathering and analysis, observation, comparison, communication, classification, inference and prediction. Coupling this with the information, background and vocabulary building they receive during regular classroom instruction creates a unique opportunity for students to excel in science at all levels.
PCA’s commitment to STEM is clearly seen in the day-to-day educational experience of Science Lab, but we also enjoy a terrific partnership with neighboring Succop Nature Park. Each class will visit Succop Nature Park at least three times each year for specific hands on STEM programming. In addition, many classrooms get visits from Succop Nature Park experts!
