EDUGATES® adopts the Delta Education series for primary Science called the SCIIS3 series. This American Hands-On Science course that develops Scientific Working and Critical Thinking skills and that comes with a complete Science Kit for every class. The course has a Life Science part and a Physical Science part. Students learn that the scientific method starts with Observation, then formulating a hypothesis, then testing the hypothesis by experiment in order to verify it or reject it. The science course trains the students to think correctly and design experiments and study the results. Students learn to accept Theories only if those theories are supported by evidence and to denounce a theory whenever scientific evidence contradicts it. This course is a very useful and successful course and impressive scientific terms become part of the children’s active vocabulary.

During this stage, regular classes are given in the above subjects and in PE, Music, and Art. Students are also encouraged to join clubs and teams in order to sharpen their skills and develop their talents.

Primary are taught Information Technology and they become skilful at using software packages.
