We incorporate hands-on experiments, project-based learning, service learning, design thinking, collaborative work, discussions, and seminars that compliment the curriculum. All frameworks will be a combination of:

Individual, small group and whole group activities, instruction and assessment.

Multiple forms of media and technology for implementation and assessment.
