Application of scientific knowledge is at the forefront of instruction in the Piscataway Science Department. Our vision in science education is by tapping into their natural curiosity, students will access learning through discovery and exploration. Our goal is for students to gain an understanding of scientific phenomena through their applications, as opposed to memorization of facts.

To achieve this, students will collaborate in hands-on investigations with peers to ask questions, develop models, construct claims from evidence, and design solutions to problems. Our students will engage in unit and topic investigations that empower them to independently identify variables to explore. These investigations, and the subsequent constructed explanations, will allow teachers to monitor and guide student progress towards reaching grade level performance expectations.
