Welcome to Science!
Welcome to the Science Department Webpage. It is our hope that you will find answers to all of your science related questions here.
Students will find the science program at Roslyn High School challenging, engaging, relevant and informative. It is our goal that students leave our school with mastery in the areas of Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. We offer several different paths to meet that goal both through our core science courses and the elective program.
Our Regents level science courses are tied to the New York State Learning Standards and prepare students for the Regents Examinations in June. Students will complete at least 1200 minutes of hands-on laboratory experiences in preparation for those exams.
The Honors level science courses cover all of the Regents curricula and are enriched with SAT II material. Students will be prepared to take the subject tests in either Biology or Chemistry (an optional exam) in June.
The PLTW Pathway to Engineering program offers students a rich STEM experience including: working with CAD software, robotics, coding, automation and other engineering concepts.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
From launching space explorations to delivering safe, clean water to communities, engineers find solutions to pressing problems and turn their ideas into reality. PLTW Engineering empowers students to step into the role of an engineer, adopt a problem-solving mindset, and make the leap from dreamers to doers. The program’ s courses engage students in compelling, real-world challenges that help them become better collaborators and thinkers. Students take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.
The SNHS at Roslyn is officially active. See Mr. Dispigno or Mr. Marvin for details.
