Science is a cornerstone of the Montessori curriculum. Classroom teachers engage students daily in a wide range of topics including biology, zoology, botany, chemistry, and physics.
Students in Kindergarten through Sixth Grade also explore science with the full-time Science specialist in the lab. Kingsley students conduct science experiments, observe results, and analyze data. Students in the younger grades separate molecules with chromatography, examine the habits and anatomy of insects, and study the energy transformations in simple machines. Older students devise methods to test water they collect from the Charles River, construct electric motors, and closely observe the life cycles of protozoa.
