Department Chair: Dr. Scott Best
In an increasingly complex global community, the Conestoga Science Department recognizes the need to produce active, informed citizens who understand scientific issues that impact our everyday existence. Communities of learners who can access and analyze scientific and technological information will be able to make informed decisions about our future.
Science courses are activity-based, lab oriented classes that prepare students for pre-college testing (e.g. SAT subject tests, Advanced Placement tests), further study in college, and citizenship in a technical society. The goal of the Science Department is to make sure that all students are exposed to the major disciplines of science before graduating. In order to fulfill graduation requirements, students must successfully complete three credits of science, including 1 credit in Biology.
