At Boulder Valley School District, we aim to provide an innovative, whole-child approach to learning to aid in students’ development as problem-solvers in a scientific and technological world.
BVSD seeks to guide and facilitate young learners in their process of exploration and design: helping them to craft investigative questions, objectively consider evidence, organize their thoughts into explanations, and engage in thoughtful argumentation.
BVSD aims to provide a rich science and engineering experience by engaging students in constructing their own ideas through reading informational text, participating in hands-on investigations, analyzing and interpreting data, and collaborating with peers to construct oral and written scientific explanations.
BVSD seeks to provide many opportunities to build a strong foundation in some of the key underlying themes in science and engineering: patterns, cause and effect, structure and function, and systems.
Congratulations to Erin Mayer (Casey Middle School) for being recognized by ISEF (International Science and Engineering Fair) and the Society for Science in her mentorship of students for Broadcom Masters and ISEF competition/research. Erin will participate in an Advocate Program and work with other advocates across the nation to further STEM opportunities for students that are traditionally underrepresented.
