Science

All Colfax students have the opportunity to utilize our Science Lab on a regular basis! Classes go to the Science Lab with their teachers to conduct experiments, engage in the scientific method and access the FOSS materials. We have a full time Science Lab Assistant who assists the teachers in lesson preparation and execution. PACE funds this staff member as well as supplies for experiments, veterinary care for the animals and

Colfax is also lucky to have a fully functioning Farm and Garden. This allows for unique, hands-on learning experiences in science related activities.

As we transition into the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), student have more opportunity to explore the disciplinary core ideas (content), scientific and engineering practices, and cross-cutting concepts.
