Our Science department strives to have teachers develop effective hands-on inquiry that involves a series of steps that builds students’ investigative skills (i.e. observation, questioning, experimental design, data analysis, explanation and reflection). This approach allows our teachers to create curriculum that aligns to the NYC DOE Science Scope and Sequence while providing support and flexibility to engage in experimental science investigations.
Park Slope School 282 has two full-time science teachers. One for grades K-5 and the other for grades 6-8. 282 also has a dedicated fully equipped science lab.
