We'll explore ideas that cross disciplines. We'll challenge you to think critically and form opinions. And we'll help you see how science relates to your world.
Our curriculum is grounded in foundational work in the major disciplines (chemistry and biology), and then it takes off. There are offerings in robotics and engineering, astronomy and geology, and animal evolution; honors level chemistry, biology, physics and anatomy; and advanced placement courses in biology, chemistry, environmental science, physics and psychology. Our Signature Experience in Advanced Research Science (EXP) allows you dive deeply into a particular area of science and find out what it really means to become an expert in a field of study.
The laboratory experience is a vital and integrated part of our courses. You'll learn how to interpret data and construct hypotheses, use traditional and computer-based equipment, and write clear and persuasive lab reports.
Being fully involved in the scientific process not only promotes critical thinking skills, but it also encourages students to facilitate their own learning and apply what they have learned to the real world. Meredith Salmon, science teacher
Mike Massimino Ph.D., professor of engineering at Columbia University and a veteran of two space flights and author of Spaceman: An Astronaut’s Unlikely Journey to Unlock the Secrets of the Universe, shared his incredible and inspiring story with Peddie students today, encouraging students to pursue their passions.
The Research Science Signature Experience (also known as EXP) is a program designed to help students develop their passion for scientific research and to encourage them to consider an eventual career in science-related fields. During the summer between Junior and Senior year, each EXP student completes approximately 200 hours of laboratory work. This year's EXP class placed in labs at the University of Pennsylvania, UCLA, Stanford, Boston College, MIT, Carnegie Mellon University, NYU, and even at NTNU in Norway and an NGO in Uganda!
