Welcome to the Science Department at Campus High

Science is a way of knowing. As the world becomes increasingly technical, citizens must become more scientifically literate and knowledgeable. The pace of scientific advancement has become so rapid that developing scientific literacy without training is challenging. To this end, East Orange Campus High has embraced the Next Generation Science Standards strategies that train our students using Cross-Cutting Concepts, Science and Engineering Practices and Disciplinary Core Ideas. Our students develop arguments using Claim, Evidence and Reasoning. Our teachers train the students on  Scientific Modeling and Argumentation in order to engage in science in the same way that scientists do. To provide students with career and college experiences and training, the following science clubs and programs are available at Campus High.

Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA)

HOSA is an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education (HSE) Division of ACTE. HOSA's two-fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the healthcare industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. HOSA's goal is to encourage all health science instructors and students to join and be actively involved in the HSE-HOSA Partnership.

The American Chemical Society’s SEED Program

For 8 to 10 weeks every summer, EOCHS students work in real laboratories, with real scientists serving as their mentors.The American Chemical Society's (ACS) Project SEED Summer I program provides a $2,500 fellowship to economically disadvantaged students to participate in summer research at an academic, government, or industrial laboratory. An important feature of the Project SEED program is its emphasis on career development and its motivation of students to pursue higher education in the natural sciences.
