Kents Hill School Students in the Science Lab
Kents Hill’s Science program provides students with endless opportunities to grow as problem solvers, critical thinkers, and scientists. Students will be challenged to design products, complete traditional laboratory experiments, give course presentations, develop scientific writing skills, apply course content to real-world questions, and develop opinions regarding scientific ethics.
 

Featured Course: Maine Field Studies 

Maine Field studies encourages students to be grounded in Maine but connected to the world. Students learn about the environment in the forest and fields surrounding Kents Hill. They spend time learning about Maine’s forest ecosystem and agricultural economy, and engage in a community project to better understand their relationship to food production. When spring arrives, they explore plants’ seasonal transitions and learn to identify wildflowers and explain their environmental role. Exploring wildflowers in the spring will also enable an introduction into the importance of seasonal change in Maine.
