Science

Science

All Colfax students have the opportunity to utilize our Science Lab!  Classes go to the science lab with their teachers to conduct experiments, engage in the scientific method and access the FOSS materials.  We have a full time science lab assistant that assists the teachers in lesson preparation and execution.  

 

Colfax is also lucky to have a full functioning farm and garden.  This allows for unique, hands on learning experiences in science related activities. 

 

As we transition into the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), student have more opportunity to explore the disciplinary core ideas (content), scientific and engineering practices, and cross-cutting concepts.

Science Olympiad


 

Colfax Charter students enter the Los Angeles County Science Olympiad competition.  They are coached by North Hollywood High School students and Colfax teachers.  In 2016-2017 Colfax achieved First Place in the competition!
