Science and STEM
Arundel’s science program is an important part of our curriculum. Arundel follows the San Carlos School District Scope and Sequence for science as aligned with the State Science Framework. Instruction is provided in all classrooms on a regular basis by the classroom teacher.
The San Carlos School District is currently integrating The Next Generation Science Standards into our curriculum. With the recent adoption of STEMscopes Science Curriculum our students will experience hands-on science with real world learning.
At Arundel Elementary School we strive to integrate STEM into our classrooms and through after school activities. STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. STEM is important because it pervades every part of our lives. By exposing students to STEM activities and giving them opportunities to explore STEM-related concepts, they will develop a solutionary mindset while gaining college and career ready skills. Our Maker Space is under construction and welcomes ideas to keep it growing as a creative space for ideas and collaboration to flourish.
