The Graduate Certificate in Science, Grades K–8 strengthens educators’ understanding of key science concepts and prepares them to transfer that knowledge to the K–8 classroom. Educators explore the nature and history of science, environmental science, physical phenomena, ecology, and earth science. Throughout these courses, educators engage actively in the scientific process, learning how to apply the tools of scientific inquiry, discovery, and hypothesis to deepen their own understanding and create engaging K–8 learning experiences. Educators consider emerging trends and issues in science and science education, including genetic engineering, biotechnologies, climate change, and the demand for increased science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) instruction. Credits earned from this certificate program may be applied toward Walden’s MS in Education with a specialization in Science (Grades K–8).
