The science department staff at Region III is committed to ensuring all students are successful in science education. Teachers are offered intense hands on trainings that allow their students to see the science in everyday life. Thorough knowledge of the TEKS, critical thinking skills, differentiated instruction, and scientific process skills are our common goals to achieving lifelong learners.
Living Science Materials
Living Materials Cooperative will provide live plants and animals to school campuses as needed for instructional projects.

The menu of materials available was expanded to include enrichment activities, glass microscope slide sets, handouts, new live animals, new microscopic organisms and new planting materials.
