Science Research Headquarters 

Welcome to Notre Dame's Science Research Headquarters!

2013 Independent Research Students with Mrs. Giannantonio

A true scientist is able to formulate testable hypotheses from observations.  The design of an experiment is crucial in determining the answers to the hypotheses.  Through the Academy of Notre Dame’s science research program, students are introduced to the techniques and processes necessary for understanding and executing scientific investigations.  Mentored by the science faculty, students design and conduct experiments of interest during the school year.  These experiments are entered into various competitions after experimentation is complete.  The program enables students to perform studies outside of the curriculum as well as attain a feel for scientific research through practice.

All students at the Academy of Notre Dame are encouraged to conduct scientific research.  Students in the middle school, as well as members of the honors biology and honors chemistry classes conduct research projects that are incorporated into course curricula.  All other students may elect to complete research projects as part of the independent research program.

Students from the Academy of Notre Dame will find valuable information regarding independent student research, research requirements for Honors Chemistry and Honors Biology classes, directions for middle school science projects, forms, rules and links needed in order to enter the Delaware County Science Fair (Delaware Valley Science Fair and the Intel ISEF) and the Pennsylvania Junior Academy of Science.

A special thanks is extended to the Honors Chemistry and Honors Biology students whose work is displayed on this website.
