Our Mission: The Mission of Burns Science and Technology is to cultivate learners and leaders who are inspired, able, and prepared to make a positive difference in the world.
Our Philosophy: Our educational philosophy is straightforward and profound: in order for students to understand, they must do. We offer a project-based, active learning environment that encourages students to link learning to real-life. We foster critical thinking, independent problem solving, strong communication skills, and ambitious goal setting.
The mission and philosophy are accomplished through…
Project-Based Learning (PBL) is an instructional practice that encourages students to learn and apply knowledge and skills through a hands-on experience that simulates real-life situations.
Thematic units are used to help create real-life situations. A thematic unit is when the curriculum is centered around a theme. The themes will be taken from the courses' curriculum connections and what students think is interesting and engaging.
