K-12 Science Program
The goal of the Westfield Science Program is to foster students’ curiosity about the natural world and provide them with the skill set to plan and carry out investigations about natural phenomena. This goal includes providing students with the foundational concept knowledge in the areas of Physical Science, Earth & Space Science, Life Science, and Engineering Practice that they will continue to build upon as they progress through their education in the sciences. Through authentic hands-on learning experiences students develop their ability to question, reason, argue, and communicate their findings.
