Intellectual curiosity is a hallmark of an Ursuline student. Asking “why” is at the heart of the study of science, and at Ursuline, students engage in the major scientific disciplines as well as enjoy the opportunity to explore other areas of science through an array of electives. Teachers rely on a variety of teaching methods to engage scientific inquiry, utilizing Ursuline’s well-equipped laboratory spaces to encourage exploration. Technology such as virtual reality is seamlessly incorporated to yield additional experiences that transcend the physical space, and students work together to develop collaborative strategies for design and problem-solving. Students graduate from Ursuline with a firm base of knowledge, in addition to critical thinking skills and analytical skills deepened through experimentation.
