Ten members of the HAX Robotics team represented Loomis Chaffee at the Connecticut FIRST Tech Robotics State Championship and earned a prestigious Think Award on February 22.
Through a broad range of course offerings, the Science Department at Loomis challenges you to think more deeply about the world around you. Laboratory experiments, hands-on activities, and computer simulations empower you to live in and contribute to an increasingly technological society while gaining confidence in your own abilities.
While we encourage everyone to take the traditional core classes in biology, chemistry, and physics, we also offer many other enriching courses beyond those subjects. Advanced Biology courses are signature aspects of our curriculum, and departmental Guided Research Projects enable interested students to conduct highly focused scientific investigations in a college research-like setting. We also offer several extracurricular activities related to science, including our competitive LC Robotics Team, the Physics Olympiad, and the Science Quiz Bowl team.
Students and faculty feted the official “energization” of Loomis Chaffee’s new solar array with a Solar Fest on January 13, during community time in the Scanlan Campus Center.
Student interest in pursuing a Global & Environmental Studies Certificate at Loomis Chaffee has grown since the program’s inception six years ago, prompting expansion of the program’s scope to reflect its popularity and continued evolution.
