The Canandaigua City School District Science Program strives to inspire an enthusiasm for scientific literacy, foster an inquisitive spirit in learners through inquiry-based experiences in real-life contexts, and create a community of scientifically literate individuals who are able to make informed decisions.

Primary Elementary School

Students will become curious and creative learners. We will encourage students to explore their curiosity and also develop their knowledge of scientific skills, processes and concepts at the same time. Science learning will include a mix of teacher presentations, hands-on activities, and laboratory explorations that will help develop students’ critical thinking skills. Our goal is to have students recognize that science is a part of many areas of their lives.

Middle School

Students will become responsible, independent, questioning, creative, and organized learners. We will encourage students to move from curiosity to familiarity and then mastery of scientific skills, processes, concepts, and theories. Students will explore the various disciplines of science through a progression of class presentations, hands-on activities, and laboratory investigations that emphasize scientific processes and develop students’ critical thinking skills. Our goal is to have students recognize that science integrates with mathematics, technology, written language, consumer and career pathways.
