Science- Mrs. Casey
The Science Contest challenges students to read widely in biology, chemistry and physics, to understand the
significance of experiments rather than to recall obscure details, and to be alert to new discoveries and
information in the areas of science. It is designed to help students gain an understanding of the basic principles as
well as knowledge of the history and philosophy of science, and to foster a sense of enthusiasm about science and
how it affects our daily lives.

the Information Age.
