Now more than ever, science is filtering into our daily lives. Adults and children alike are reading articles about global warming, climate change, and vaccinations and are making decisions that affect the global society. As a result, it is the mission of the Trumbull Public Schools to provide high-quality science education to all students that will provide them with an in-depth understanding of science content and skills that will allow them to make informed decisions which impact global society. 

Trumbull Public School students, grades K-5, actively engage in a hands-on, inquiry based curriculum to establish a solid foundation of the NGSS science standards. Lessons are centered around a natural phenomenon to encourage students to develop questions which will lead to a deeper understanding of the core concepts investigated in each unit. As students develop a deeper understanding of the core ideas they begin to make sense of the phenomenon and understand how the science concepts apply to the world around them. At the end of each unit students also take part in an engineering and design activity where students apply what they have learned to creatively solve real world problems. This skill encourages students to collaborate and introduces them to the idea that one problem can have multiple solutions. These authentic experiences allow students to not only act like scientists, but also allow them to engage in real world problem solving skills using evidence to engage in discourse, ask questions, and think critically about current issues.
