Technology in Nature
The integration of technology is fundamental to our middle school environmental science program. Our 1-1 Ipad and Chromebook program along with our proximity to the Presidio allows our teachers to be dynamic and innovative in their lesson design. We believe technology literacy is vital, and if applied appropriately, can enhance a facet of science skills. We remind students that technology is a science tool that allows them to make observations and inferences they couldn't ordinarily make.
