Science classes include laboratory work for hands-on experience. Students are also encouraged to be mentors in either one of our high school Robotics or Chemistry club.
They are encouraged to engage in enrichment activities outside of the classroom. Among these are facilitating activities in the Hunting Park Science Network events and the Philadelphia Science Festival (collaboration with Franklin Institute). Summer research opportunities are also available to students.
Upon matriculation into the program students will be informed by the Program Director about experiences outside of the classroom they can participate in to enhance their learning and preparation for their field.
