At the elementary level, students explore the curriculum in teams of four known as Crews. Each member of the Crew is assigned one of four unique roles: Commander, Communications Specialist, Information Specialist, or Materials Specialist. This unique, team-based instructional approach introduces students at an early age to the concept of working as a team to solve problems and conduct scientific experiments. The structure is intended to mimic real-world scientific exploration, and students complete the curriculum while developing critical soft skills such as teamwork and communication.
