How is SciTech different from regular highschool?
The SciTech program focuses on the science and technology subject areas. Students use their theoretical knowledge learned in science courses and apply it to their practical projects in technological courses. Additionally, students explore their own areas of interest by building and experimenting, and are provided with high tech facilities.
