The Science Department at Wooster School believes that scientific literacy is necessary in order to engage fully in the global workplace. Our program is developmentally appropriate, interesting, and relevant to student’s lives. It is designed to provide education that prepares students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and lifelong learners. By combining a supportive academic environment with a hands-on inquiry-based approach our students are able to find success.
The Field Studies Program, which began in 2009, provides an opportunity for sophomores and juniors to participates in scientific field work with loggerhead sea turtles. In cooperation with MOTE Marine Labortatory in Sarasota, Florida, the students satellite tag and track loggerhead sea turtles off the gulf coast of Florida. The satellite data is used throughout the lower school science curriculum and sophmore biology class. Our 2011 sea turtle is sponsored by Wooster School and is named Scupper.
