Science

Science

All Colfax students have the opportunity to utilize our Science Lab!  Classes go to the science lab with their teachers to conduct experiments, engage in the scientific method and access the FOSS materials and the Mystery Science curriculum. We have a full time science lab assistant that assists the teachers in lesson preparation and execution.  

 

Colfax is also lucky to have a full functioning farm and garden.  This allows for unique, hands on learning experiences in science related activities. 

 

Using the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), students have more opportunity to explore the disciplinary core ideas (content), scientific and engineering practices, and cross-cutting concepts.

Science Olympiad

Science Olympiad is an after-school club for 4th and 5th grade students who are interested in competing in a spring Science Olympiad tournament held in Los Angeles. Students work each week with coaches from North Hollywood High School on concepts, skills, and strategies that will help them in events such as Deep Blue Sea, A is for Anatomy, Tennis Ball Catapult, and Egg Drop.  In 2018-2019 Colfax achieved a gold medal in the competition.
