Science courses enhance students’ awareness of their environment and the scientific and technological implications in it. Our courses cross disciplines and challenge students to think critically, while their laboratory experience teaches them to interpret data, construct hypotheses and write clear and persuasive technical lab reports.
In addition to the sequence of core and advanced science courses (Biology,Chemistry, Physics), we offer courses in Robotics (starting in 6th grade), Principles of Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, Food Chemistry, Forensic Science, App Development, Web Design with HTML5 and CSS3, Applied Anatomy and Kinesiology and so much more.
Students can prepare for Advanced Placement exams in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Physics 2, Physics C and Environmental Science.
Tampa Prep offers an interdisciplinary STEM Concentration for rising 10th grade students who relish the study of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This academic track challenges students to become better problem solvers, and dive deeply into a particular area of science to find out what it really means to become an expert in a field of study.
NOTE: Our STEM and Robotics teacher KK Quah has written two books for LEGO Education that used two of their Education Sets. He also authored Preparing Your Team for FIRST LEGO League, which was sold by LEGO Education and focused on how to problem solve for FLL missions and how to get a process started to come up with solutions. Mr. Quah coached FLL for more than 10 years.
