Science Programs

Science Research Program

  • The Science Research Program begins with Introduction to Research at Berner for students in 8th Grade. Research I and Laboratory Skills for Research are the courses for students in the first year of high school.  The research courses continue at the Main Campus, leading to the International Prep class for seniors.  

    If you have a strong interest in science, enjoy problem-solving and like science competitions, such as the Science Discovery Fair, you may be interested in the Science Research Program. Information about the program, application process and the forms can be found on our PowerSchool Learning class titled Science Research Applicants.   Students are encouraged to participate in the Science Discovery Fair on March 28, 2020.  All applications must be completed online.

    Students are encouraged to join the Science Olympiad and the Science Research Club at the Main Campus.
