The Science Lab is a hands-on environment where the students can demonstrate what they have learned in the classroom.
  • Each academic year is divided into a series of Core Experience Learning Labs  (CELLs).
  • Each CELL consists of three to six  Investigations, each of which takes approximately a week to complete.
  • Each Investigation consists of three lessons – PreLab, Lab and PostLab
  • The PreLab and PostLab are completed in the classroom.  Most labs are done in the Science lab; times vary according to grade level. 
  • In grades 3rd to 8th the students are responsible for completing their SDRs each week.  
  • The students are graded on their lab participation, SDR completion, and an assessment to check their knowledge of scientific concepts introduced each week.  A performance assessment is performed by the students at the end of each cell.
