Where you are the Scientist and the Engineer.
Wicked Science is an innovative program where kids thrive at the many activities that spark an interest and nurture curiosity to improve higher cognitive thinking and problem-solving. Students learn about asking good questions then find the answers which keeps them coming back for more!
Integrating Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Wicked Science nurtures inquiry to build a foundation towards comprehending difficult concepts. Many teachers and professionals say that this kind of learning needs to take place at an early age so students reach high school with an interest in these fields. Wicked Science is that stepping stone. Drawing upon the 4 domains of the Next Generation Science Standards: Physical Science; Life Science; Earth and Space Science; and Engineering, Technology, and Application of Science ideas and cross-cutting concepts. Of importance are the eight practices:
* The "High Adventure" of discovery drives the learning and doing with these activities based on NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards.
