Scientific Tools and Techniques

The Scientific Tools and Techniques Program (STT) is a challenging, fast-paced, one-semester program designed to familiarize 9th grade students with the tools and techniques of scientific inquiry. STT students are involved in rigorous science curriculum and take an array of life and environmental science modules taught by instructors who are field specialists. In one semester students take two accelerated high school science courses: STT Biology and STT Environmental Science.
