Over the course of four years, students proceed through a science course plan that infuses engineering concepts along the way. In 9th grade, students take Earth and Space Science and visit the Carnegie Science Center Galleries to bring their learning alive each week. Students in 10th grade take Biology at the Energy Innovation Center Citizen Science Lab.They engage with lab equipment and learn college-level techniques and also receive mentoring from Duquesne University students who work as lab aids. Chemistry is offered in 11th grade, while students have a choice of Physics or another AP Science in 12th grade. Introduction to Engineering Design and Introduction to Robotics are some of the science elective offerings.
