The science department at Coatesville Area Intermediate High School recognizes the need to help students become informed citizens who understand scientific issues that impact our society and the global environment. We also believe that our students need to acquire scientific reasoning and thinking skills in order to become life-long learners able to apply reasoning skills to solving problems. We believe in the use of technology and hands on activities to accomplish these goals.
