Scientific Tools & Techniques
The Scientific Tools and Techniques Program (STT) is a semester-long course designed to familiarize students with the tools and techniques of scientific inquiry. STT students practice problem-solving skills utilizing a fully integrated science curriculum. Through laboratory and field work, students explore all aspects of science, gaining a better understanding and a greater appreciation for the scientific process.
The program is free of charge, and is open to 9th grade students enrolled in the DeKalb County School System. Transportation is provided free of charge.
Students apply through their school counselors, who have applications and printed brochures. Please note that the applications and other materials are returned directly to the schools, not to Fernbank Science Center. The deadlines for submitting materials are set by the individual schools.
