Science explores and explains phenomena around us. It is a way of gaining, organizing, applying, and conveying knowledge of that phenomena. Having science as one of the core contents in K-12 education is vital, as it influences our culture and has allowed society to flourish.
Providing service and support for all educational stakeholders is the OCDE Science Department's core mission.
