The Science Department aims to produce the next generation of scientific leaders. Currently in the United States, students of color are drastically underrepresented at all levels of the scientific community. It is the mission of this science department to produce scientifically literate and scientifically enthusiastic students who will combat this national deficiency. We aim to accomplish these goals by presenting students with exciting hands-on problems and allowing their natural curiosity to force them towards solutions. We will then nourish this natural curiosity with rigorous instruction and research opportunities. We understand that we are up against years of previous horrendous science education; we believe we are up to the task.
