How we guide your student
Today more than ever, science plays a crucial role in how your student experiences life every day—a trend that’s not slowing down anytime soon. You want your student to be conscious of the evolutions happening in science and technology and aware of their impact on humanity and our world. You also want your student to have the foundational knowledge and skills to build a career in science if they so choose. Our High School Science program achieves this by guiding your student to see life through the eyes of a scientist.
Mentors in these courses help students develop a lasting relationship with science by emphasizing big picture concepts that give students a mental framework for organizing ideas. Through live science labs and mentor demonstrations, students gain competency in the investigation and design practices used by professional scientists and engineers. Mentors also expose students to the most impactful ideas in science throughout history and challenge them to apply what they learn in fun and engaging projects. Most importantly, mentors create a safe environment for students to try, fail, and learn along the way.
By completing these courses, students develop a scientific outlook on the world that stays with them long after high school. They notice and understand the implications of modern-day advances in technology, think critically about the role of science in their lives, and gain the skills to excel in any future science courses they pursue.
