WE FOCUS ON STEAM EDUCATION THROUGH INQUIRY PROJECTS
STEM + Art = STEAM
The pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence.
The use of both physical tools and software to facilitate learning and improving performance.
The process of creating and building structures, products, and systems by using math and science.
The purposeful expression of an idea that is created with imagination and skill.
The use of numbers, shapes and patterns to solve problems and construct arguments.
KEY EDUCATIONAL DESIGN ELEMENT
An Integrated Approach to Learning through a Science Lens
MOSAICS Public School will provide a comprehensive STEAM education to our students. A key component will be cross-curricular, project-based learning centered around the Idaho Science Standards and the Design Thinking Process. Students will solve authentic, real world problems where multiple solutions exist. We believe in the power of students’ creativity and interests to propel the learning in our school. As often as possible our curricular program will integrate multiple subject areas, which maximizes our students’ time in the classroom and provides opportunities for students to transfer their learning to multiple contexts and tap into their natural curiosities.
“MOSAICS has become a great option for students who thrive in a project-based learning environment that allows them to pursue their own passions and curiosity. MOSAICS brings a strong culture to build a growth mindset and an excitement for learning along with a commitment to the success of every student.”
