In Experimental Science and Engineering, 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
Assisting learner-directed project planning, research design, and publication
Introducing novel data sources and processing protocols
Extending application of research through service and through mentorship of younger scientists
Connecting student researchers with subject-area experts and special learning opportunities
