JPII Room (for Science and Art)

Project GoalThe goal of this projects is to provide space and curriculum to educate our students in the area of Science and the arts. A scientist generally takes things apart for study before bringing them together in solutions. Science supports the development of critical thinking skills through observation, communication, comparison, measuring and organizing. The Science lab experience students to integrate head knowledge into experience. The room would also provide us with a space to develop gifts, talents and appreciation for the visual and performing arts. The visual artist interprets beauty and creatively combines media to communicate a sense of aesthetics to others. St. Philomena School would like to continue to make an impact throughout the City of Carson by providing its students with a much-needed visual and infrastructural makeover to enhance the learning and teaching experience for hundreds of students and instructors in the area of STEAM education. The project will be sustained through teacher instruction. Also, we are working with Janet Grothe, Public Affairs Manager at Phillips 66, to provide professional development workshop for our teachers and Science Kits from Kindergarten through Eighth Grade through National Energy Education Development Project. Two of our teachers have already been trained, but we would like to be able to provide all the staff with this training and Science Kits.
