It is the intent of the Biology and Geo-Science Department to offer courses containing the most current and pertinent content and concepts in science. To this end, we offer elective courses that are career-oriented and courses for the student who has a generally high interest in science.
Major student publications, sponsored by the department, include the Bio-Med Times and the Environment Times. These have consistently won high awards in Scholastic Press competitions. Another major magazine, The Journal of Student Science Research, reports abstracts of the science research projects performed by students in the Intel Science Talent Search classes.
The department hosts several extracurricular clubs which include the Science Olympiad Team, the Biology Olympiad Team,the Science Research Society, The Bio-Med Society, The Medical Ethics Club, and the Meteorology Club which uses our satellite weather station.
The department has a long, unbroken history of winning major awards in science research, science essay and science fair contests. For example, Stuyvesant students are regularly semi-finalists and finalists in the Intel Science Talent Search competition, The Otto P. Burgdorf Student Science Research Conference sponsored by the New York Biology Teachers Association, St. John's University Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, the Manhattan Borough and New York City Science Fairs, the International Science and Engineering Fair, and the Science Olympiad.
