Science

Blanchard Memorial School's science curriculum is rooted in exploration and hands-on learning. Through age-appropriate investigations, students deepen their understanding of the world around them and hone their observation, inquiry, and critical thinking skills. While developing scientific, engineering, and technical competencies, students also build key social emotional skills like perseverance, collaboration, and problem-solving.
