In Experimental Science, high school and middle school students utilize an enrichment-learning model enabling them to develop a unique research program that is an outgrowth of their own curiosity, interests, and gifting.
Learning in experimental science is centered on advancing student research and communication skills through advanced project-based work with the following objectives or outcomes:
Developing effective academic research practices in science and engineering
Assisting learner-directed project planning, research design, and publication
Introducing novel data sources and processing protocols
Extending application of research through service and through mentoring younger scientists
Connecting student researchers with subject-area experts and special learning opportunities
