    All RLAS students will become scientifically literate citizens ready to critically consume, apply, and construct scientific knowledge.


    Students are engaged in scientific practices every day without even realizing it as they ask questions about their world, investigate and troubleshoot problems, and explain answers.  The science department seeks to build upon students’ innate curiosity to engage them in authentic and rigorous investigations that support the development of critical thinking and communication skills.
