College News and Departmental Notes: Science in the Speyer and Horace Mann Schools


by Departmental notes - 1918

At the Speyer School during the past year science has been presented wholly in projects. The aim has been to obtain at the end of the year a large number of projects which would interpret for pupils those matters of scientific interest which they meet in the home, in the school, on the street, in the newspaper, and elsewhere. These projects, arranged and classified on the basis of importance in our environment, frequency of occurrence, and particular individual needs, will form the nucleus of what may perhaps be termed a Course of Study in General Science. This course will indicate some of the 'minimum essentials* in science; i.e., those environmental elements which every intelligent citizen ought fully to understand and appreciate. Beyond that 'the course* will be valuable for any other group of pupils to the extent that the latter approaches the Speyer School group in interests and environment.
