General School Mission

"The Science School at Museum of Nature & Science provides a complete curriculum in English and Spanish designed to spark your child's imagination and to nurture a love for learning in the most incredible science-based facility in the city! Your child will benefit from our extensive educational resources at The Museum of Nature & Science and Fair Park such as robot dinosaurs, an actual beehive, a talking tooth, and a lagoon, the Aquarium, Planetarium and its very own IMAX© Theater. The Science School provides a superior dual-language program through which children are prepared for an increasingly complex international world." -- Excerpted from The Science Place School website.

A Typical Day

"At The Science School at Museum of Nature & Science, we begin every day with a group Circle Time. It is a period designed to introduce new ideas and prepare children for the day. The children and teacher form a circle on the floor and begin with daily activities such as calendar and weather. The theme or educational unit selected is then introduced and discussed as a group and more fully explored through related activities at a variety of centers that are chosen individually by each child. Throughout each day, an ample amount of time is allotted for exploration and fun both inside and outside. Our centers include the Discovery, Art, Language, Math, Computer, Library, Imagination and Manipulatives. Each day ends with group Circle Time and students and teachers reflect on the discoveries of the day." -- Excerpted from The Science Place School website.
