Science and Engineering

CTY’s online science and engineering courses help bring science to life for students of all ages—from introducing elementary school students to topics not covered in a standard science curriculum to building science knowledge and reinforcing concepts for middle school students, to helping high schoolers master complex scientific concepts and preparing them for Advanced Placement exams. Courses are presented in a dynamic online environment that includes graphics, animations, video, and audio-narration. Students are guided by expert CTY science educators, who communicate via virtual classrooms, email, and phone. Instructors are trained in the use of technology and are knowledgeable about the best practices in distance education for exceptionally bright students. Several courses include virtual exercises, hands-on experiments using common household objects, and special science lab kits.

Students who enroll in the individually paced middle school science or high school science series may start at any time during the year and progress at their own pace within their enrollment period. Review the academic calendar for session dates for forensics, engineering, NCAA approved high school science courses, and AP science courses. The AP science courses have been reviewed by the College Board and are authorized to use its "AP" designation.
