Science 833

In District 833 we believe that science literacy is best achieved when the process of learning occurs through a balanced and comprehensive curriculum. To support this literacy we align our work with the Minnesota Science Standards, focusing on the three dimensions of science: the practices of science and engineering; cross cutting concepts such as identifying patterns and systems and system models; and disciplinary core ideas from the areas of physical science, life science, earth and space science as well as engineering and technology.
