4/5 STEM Program
The mission of the Las Virgenes Unified School District's Science Team is to enhance student achievement and generate a love for the sciences. Lessons follow the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
Each lesson is designed to provide a "hands-on" approach to learning. Our overall goal is to inspire each child and develop in students the ability to apply scientific principles to everyday life.
The focus of NGSS instruction integrates traditional science content with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). Science and Engineering are Integrated in the NGSS from K–12. Engineering practices allow students the opportunity to define, imagine, plan, create, and improve design. The NGSS are designed to prepare students for college, career, and citizenship.
