The science program at BB&N aims to empower students to think critically and act ethically by instilling a systemic approach and scientific lens to problem solving. The curriculum employs a laboratory and project-based discovery model in the belief that insights are best developed in an exploratory and experimental setting. Objectivity in observation, accuracy in data gathering and recording, identification and control of variables, the manipulation and presentation of data, and the evaluation of the validity of experiments are lab skills emphasized as appropriate to the grade level and discipline. At all levels, themes of sustainable development, scientific research, and decision-making on a global scale are incorporated. The program challenges students to appreciate science as an imaginative, impassioned, human endeavor essential to preserving our world for generations to come.
