Science & Engineering

Welcome to the FES Science & Engineering webpage!

At Farmington Elementary, we strive to enhance student learning through the use of a variety of technologies.  We are lucky enough to be supported by our district to have 1 to 1 iPads for our students.  Throughout the year, students will be working on iPads to explore science and engineering concepts.

Science & Engineering Class meets once a week for Grades 1-5 and twice a week for Kindergarten. Through hands-on activities, explorations, group projects and investigations, students are developing the 4 C’s of 21st Century Learning: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration and Communication.

Students are encouraged to think for themselves and problem solve in a variety of settings and activities.  Students will be learning about engineering using the engineering design process, the scientific method, coding, research skills, and presentation tools. Students will also develop innovative problem-solving skills through exploring STEM related activities.
