    The goal of the science program at P.S. 203 is to foster creative and scientifically driven minds.  Our curriculum includes (but is not limited to) the integration of measurement tools; live plants and animal studies (meal worms, butterflies, chickens, marigolds); water studies; ecology/environment science; and the use of technology.  P.S. 203's science program looks to cultivate these scientific facets while also improving a student's critical thinking and problem solving skills. Instructional materials that are used are: core curriculum, Carolina STC Kits, FOSS Kits, and teacher-created materials that directly correlate to the tenets set forth by the Common Core Learning Standards.
