Academic discovery in the framework of faith


Teacher:  Melinda Leal

Science at St. Philip’s is taught through the AIMS Education Foundation (Activities Integrating Mathematics and Science) curriculum. This program is a pull out program that utilizes a hands- on approach which allows students to master the scientific method, learn through experimentation and discovery. The focus of study is in three different disciplines: Earth, Life and Physical Science. Under each of these disciplines the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills are followed, which are the state standards for what students should know and be able to do in each grade level. Hands on experiments and activities engage students which expands vocabulary and allows for a greater understanding of how each system and cycle work together.
