The Amity Science Research Program is an ongoing program that is taken in conjunction with the student’s regular science course. There are several tiers to the program. During Year 1 students learn the components of scientific research including the scientific method and apply these concepts in various settings including designing and conducting an authentic science research project and communicating results by participation in at least one local science fair. Students also explore various applications of science topics through field trips, guest speakers and class projects. Students will explore research methodology and perform appropriate analyses of data on an in-depth research project. Advanced students (Years 2-4) select their science research topic, locate an out-of-school mentor (either in industry or at a local university) and compete in a variety of science fairs. Students must apply for admission to this program. Acceptance into the program will be based on a science teacher recommendation, a written response, and excellent academic grades. Students must be self- directed and capable of independent goal setting and achieving with instructional guidance. Collaboration with a mentor is mandatory for Advanced students. Applications for each school year are open to incoming 9th and 10th grade students.
