Medfield Science Department
Today’s society is constantly and rapidly changing. One of the primary reasons is the influence of expanding knowledge in the fields of science, technology and engineering. The role of science education in today’s society is twofold. First, our educational program must provide the reservoir of scientists, engineers and technicians that our society requires and, second, it must produce a scientifically literate public, able to make rational decisions on issues of a scientific nature. Each student will, through the courses offered, be able to meet the requirements of their own educational objectives and, at the same time, prepare for meaningful participation in our society.
