Science classes at PS 349 have real-world applications. Amplify Science blends digital experiences with hands-on lessons that inspire students to think like scientists and engineers to solve real-world problems. This effective and engaging curriculum was developed by the Lawrence Hall of Science. Multimodal instruction ensures students “do, talk, read, write and visualize.” They learn to actively engage with science books, build visual models of their understanding of scientific phenomena, use digital simulations to collect evidence and share their ideas with their classmates.
In addition to the Amplify Science curriculum, students participate in hands-on learning through visits to our in-house Hydroponics Lab. Students have first-hand experiences with growing vegetables and herbs in a non-traditional way. The food grown in the hydroponics lab is distributed to our families and to local food pantries.
