The DAPCEP Explorers program is based on FasTracKids, an internationally recognized curriculum designed to excite and engage young people in the educational process. The curriculum is designed to develop key school and life readiness skills such as critical thinking, creativity, confidence, communication and collaboration. DAPCEP Explorers will focus on the process of learning (how) as well as the content of the lessons (what).  Using Interactive Board technology, we will cover various topics such as: Astronomy, Biology, Creativity, Earth Science, Economics, Mathematics, Natural Science, Speech, and Technology.  The curriculum used correlates with national education standards.
