November 8, 2021: NAGS STEM NIGHT
STEM NIGHT is back in person!  A limited number of families are invited to attend this exciting event
to experiment, explore and learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math careers.

February 2022: URBAN SCHOOLS INITIATIVE ~ SCIENCE OLYMPIAD
Our Olympiad Teams are excited to compete in person in a variety of STEM challenges
 at Saint Joseph's University.



The Science curriculum is developed in accordance with the Guidelines of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and designed to develop an appreciation for our world/environment that God created. Through the study of all aspects of science (Life, Earth, Physical) students develop a respect for all life.
 
The Science curriculum is developed to enhance learning through many different ways. Laboratory experiences enhance the learning process using the Scientific Method, books, visual aids, lab material and equipment, and the Internet at all levels. Through these means the students are honing critical thinking skills.
 
Goals of our S.T.R.E.A.M. Program 
(Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math)
 
Grade 1: The students will be introduced to STREAM according to the Alphabet. This is a cross-curricular objective for the students to associate letters and words with their weekly projects.
 
Grades 2 - 4:  The students will be give thematic STREAM lessons in which to build, create and think outside the box. Creativity and imagination at work!
 
Grades 5 - 8: Each grade will be following the Next Generation Standards which will feature 5 to 7 STREAM-infused topics. 
 
 

 
 
 
The Pennsylvania Science Olympiad encourages group learning with events that challenge students to collectively work toward a common goal.  Nazareth is rising to the challenge of introducing new methods, programs and activities to increase our students' interest in Science.  Participating in the Science Olympiad is also a great way for our students to meet new people and share their knowledge and skills. 
 
Nazareth Academy Grade School students will participate in the URBAN SCHOOLS INITIATIVE under the guidance and direction of Science teacher Ms. Lisa Laverty.  Students in grades 6 - 8 have volunteered to meet weekly to prepare for competition in the Urban Initiative at Saint Joseph's University in February 2022. There are 16 events to compete in the areas of Earth Science, Anatomy, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Physiology and Engineering. 
Our team will compete in:
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Circuit Lab
  • Crime Busters
  • Experimental Design
  • Food Science
  • Forensics
  • Fossils
  • Machines
  • Write It Do It
