The School District of the Menomonie Area believes that scienceis an important activity through which problems and questions in a complex technological society can be identified and defined. Scientific literacy gives individuals confidence to face complexquestions requiring scientific thinking, reasoning, problemsolving, and the ability to apply previous information in order tomake informed decisions.

Through our hands-on science curriculum, all studentswill be able to:

  • Develop attitudes of curiosity, wonderment, and involvement with events in the natural environment.
  • Develop an appreciation for the contributions of science to daily living.
  • Develop techniques for problem solving. 
  • Develop the ability to handle, construct, and use materials and equipment in a productive and safe manner.
  • Recognize that care should be taken in maintaining the delicate balances within and around them.
  • Develop an ability to measure, organize, and communicate scientific information.
  • Develop recognition of the history and nature of science and that scientific knowledge is tentative and subject to change.
