Science & Engineering
Marin Horizon’s science curriculum promotes scientific inquiry, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills while engaging students with experiments, simulations, and real-world scenarios to make meaningful connections to the world around them.
The Lower School science curriculum not only provides students with foundational knowledge in life, earth, and physical sciences, but also encourages active learning through hands-on experiments and observations. It promotes the application of the scientific method - generating hypotheses, conducting experiments, collecting data, and drawing conclusions.
In the Upper School, students focus on more complex concepts such as energy, forces, genetics, and evolution, taking on exciting projects such as Rube Goldberg machines and catapults that allow students to apply their scientific knowledge and engineering skills as well as showcase their creativity.
Science classes are taught in mixed grade groupings, opening up opportunities for academic interactions with a larger number of students and providing deeper levels of collaborative learning experiences.
