Doing Science Like Real Scientists
Pittsfield Elementary School and Pittsfield Middle High School teachers are involved in a special science project this year called the New Hampshire Education and Environment Team. Teachers from four districts in the state—Pittsfield being one of them—are receiving support and training in developing science units that get students outside doing field investigations. They observe, collect data, and study phenomena over time, just like real scientists do. One of the goals of the project is to use the field, woodlands, and bodies of water around our schools for scientific investigations.
