Science and Engineering

The Science Department members share their enthusiasm and interests to spark curiosity and to nurture and develop an interest in science.It is important for students to understand that science is a process for approaching problems and that the approaches used in science may be relevant to other situations in their lives. The department stresses to students how science is an ever-expanding body of knowledge and that ideas and theories are modified as scientists learn more. It is a dynamic field, not a static one!
