Spotlight on Education | Science is alive at Oakland Hebrew Day School

a special advertising feature

Scientific inquiry is at the heart of the Oakland Hebrew Day School science program. Students learn best by exploring the world around them through hands-on learning, building models, designing their own experiments and generating questions. Whether it’s visiting the Lawrence Hall of Science to make their own “slime,” inviting a parent to share real fossils and artifacts, or working with U.C. Berkeley engineering students to lead a robotics session — it’s imperative that our students understand that science is all around us.

Not only do OHDS students explore the world with their hands, but they gain the critical reading, research and writing skills to engage with the breadth and depth of scientific information. Students are given the tools to become scientifically literate, learning to inquire and report on a wide variety of relevant scientific topics, organize research notes, cite peer-reviewed evidence, and present their findings.

This powerful combination of exploration and skills-based learning gives our students the confidence to pursue their innate curiosity about our ever-changing world and truly makes science come alive!

We invite you to visit OHDS to learn more about our rich science curriculum, as well as the other exciting learning programs offered at our school. Contact Philippa Lichterman in the admissions office at [email protected] or (510) 531-8600 to schedule a personal tour of the campus.
