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.
A cadre of Loomis Chaffee students and faculty traveled to Princeton, New Jersey, on Saturday, April 6, to take part in "Lead Like a Girl," a conference hosted by The National Center for Girls' Leadership at Stuart Country Day School.
Congratulations to Loomis Chaffee science students for their successes at 2019 state and regional science competitions!
Pelicans Jeff Scanlon '79 and Scott MacClintic '82 are on board to lead new two-week Immersion Programs focused on writing and Design Thinking in this year's Loomis Chaffee Summer Program enrolling now for June 2019.
In all of our science classes we seek to challenge our students to problem solve and to understand the fundamental principles of nature. In all that we do, we strive to encourage our students to be life-long learners.
— BETSY CONGER, HEAD OF SCIENCE DEPARTMENT
