Welcome to the Acton-Boxborough Schools' Website for Elementary Science and Engineering
This site features connections for families to "snapshots" of what's happening in our elementary classrooms, as well as links to some great websites, places to explore and good (grown-up) books to read.
Science and Engineering investigations in Acton-Boxborough's schools are designed to engage students' curiosity and develop problem-solving skills. The "snapshots" on this site will give you an idea of the work that our students are doing. Working in Science requires a combination of curiosity and collaboration. Learning to think and work as a scientist requires reading, writing and investigating and communicating ideas. Acton and Boxborough are fortunate to have a community of learners - students, teachers and parents, who appreciate the value of a well-timed question or argument, in the best sense of those terms. Recent years have brought an added emphasis on Engineering to our classrooms, and students have many chances to design solutions to problems beginning in the earliest grades.
