DPS students have shown an 8% growth in science proficiency on the state assessment tests since 2005. This growth far outpaces statewide student growth, which has declined 2% in the same timeframe.
Science should not merely be read in a book – it must be touched and experienced in order to be learned.
The DPS Foundation is helping prepare our students for the 21st century marketplace by putting hands-on, cutting-edge STEM curriculum and materials in classrooms all over Denver, equipping DPS students with the tools they need to master science concepts. The goal is to raise student achievement in science, and spark a curiosity and passion for science at an early age.
Learning science requires more than reading about it in a book. As part of this dedicated effort around STEM education, DPS is putting more resources into the hands of our teachers including experiment kits, classroom equipment and more. These efforts are helping our teachers bring science concepts to life through hands-on experiments and classroom engagement.
As a result of this investment in STEM education initiatives, DPS has shown an 8% growth since 2005 in the number of students testing proficient or above in science on the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) tests. This growth far outpaces statewide student growth, which has declined 2% in the same timeframe.
"The kids in my classroom are motivated to learn and are catching on to the science concepts incredibly quickly. The hands-on materials and collaborative activities keep all the students engaged and excited about finding solutions to different problems."
Teacher, Barnum Elementary School
