To upgrade the Arlington Science Focus School Science lab in order to create a state-of-the-art, cutting-edge science and technology teaching facility; and to promote excellence in STEM at the primary education level.
Arlington Science Focus School (ASFS) is a public elementary school located in Arlington, VA, just a stone's throw from Washington, DC. The ASFS curriculum is designed to develop an extensive understanding of science content and process through inquiry-based learning. Students embark on exciting adventures each day where science content is used as the catalyst to teach all subject areas by using natural inquiry to develop students' thinking skills for analyzing, reflecting, problem-solving, and hypothesizing. Students participate in hands-on, activities dealing with ecology, biology, geology, zoology, physics, astronomy, and chemistry that are directly correlated to the Virginia Standards of Learning.
With an exceedingly high demand for young professionals with science and technology backgrounds, this project aims to create the ultimate science classroom environment complete with state-of-the-art technology, eco-friendly building materials, and nature-inspired aesthetics designed to provoke, cultivate, and foster life-long student interest in science.
All contributions will go directly to the renovation and refurbishment of the existing science lab. New state-of-the-art equipment and materials will help engage young children's interest and love for the sciences.
It was a delight and an honor to be the teacher who got to launch Investigation Station years ago, and a thrill now to see it thriving and moving to the next level. Wow! Such lucky students! Keep up the wonderful work!
