Student scientists at Carlthorp School dive into exploration with both their minds and bodies.
By designing and conducting their own experiments, students investigate and find answers to their own burning scientific questions. On any given day “scientists at work” might mean…tracking the progress of pet worms as they munch leaves and make compost, designing experiments to promote the growth of duckweed, launching rockets to explore acid-base reactions or building submersibles to kick-off a study of the world’s oceans. The science lab is a place where natural curiosity fuels scientific inquiry. It is a happily messy place where students will leave with science both on their minds and on their hands.
