Science at Delone Catholic

The Science Department believes that regardless of the choice – college, military, technical school, or the workplace – our students are prepared for the future. Each science course is centered around a challenging curriculum that not only meets, but exceeds Pennsylvania State and National Standards. All courses cover two semesters with material presented in a sequential manner that allows concept building.  The development of the students' critical thinking skills is at the core of the curriculum. All elective, level two (II) courses use college level texts.  Place-based education is accomplished by using guest speakers and field trips to enhance the curriculum and prepare students to be active participants in their local and global communities. Labs and demonstrations are geared toward hands-on learning. The use of modern technology is exemplified by the Interactive Epson Projectors in each classroom that are used for instruction and student presentations and application of lessons using Chromebooks to the classes for which they have been issued.
