Super Science motivates young students to study science, encourages them to appreciate their newly gained knowledge and relate it to their daily lives. Classes visit the Super Science Lab six times during the year. Students conduct fun, hands-on experiments in various areas of science that enrich the grade level science curriculum. The program:
- Exposes students to scientific concepts and lab equipment at an early age and allows them to build confidence in the subject area;
- Stimulates independent and group inquiry by engaging students in age-appropriate, hands-on learning;
- Develops logical thinking skills;
- Dispels the negative attitude that students often have towards science that it’s “too hard” or “for nerds”;
- Teaches students how to answer questions and solve problems using the scientific method;
- Improves students’ ability to follow verbal and written directions;
- Reinforces the California State Science Standards.
The Super Science Lab is funded by FFO Super Pledge donations.

Family Math Nights
Each month, Jerabek hosts a Family Math night for a different grade. Come to school and find out if your math skills are as great as your child's! Check the Jerabek calendar for upcoming Family Math Nights.
Family Science Nights
One of the ways for families to become familiar with science is through Family Science Nights. These fun-filled evenings provide an environment and structure where families can comfortably explore, experiment and talk about science. Families that participate in these evenings have a greater understanding of the importance of science in their child’s life.
Parents and teachers can then work together to improve attitudes towards science and encourage students to build a strong scientific foundation that will serve them well in upper grades and college. Each grade level will have a science night during the school year.
