The Science Department at the Academy of Holy Angels strives to develop scientifically literate students through a systematic study of the world around us. Through this, the department hopes to instill an appreciation for the wonders of the world and enable students of all abilities and learning styles to experience success in the science classroom.
Department Learner Outcomes
Students will be able to:
Apply math skills to a variety of science activities.
Utilize current computer technology in the science lab.
Write a cohesive lab report (technical writing skills).
