Upper School Course Description

  • Science
Advanced Research Chemistry

Prerequisite: AT Chemistry. 

Recommended Prerequisites/Corequisites: Computer science and/or statistics 
Research science is a highly interdisciplinary course where students will perform scientific research on a specific topic. Students will work collaboratively in a laboratory setting to advance their current understanding of the relationship between structure and properties in layered materials for battery applications. Students will gain experience in simulation environments, computer programming, data analysis and interpretation, mathematical modeling, engineering, and materials chemistry. Furthermore, students will gain first-hand experience in the research process, as well as experience the successes, failures, and unexpected tangents it involves.
