New Visions Life Sciences Program

New Visions Life Sciences is a unique, fun, and challenging opportunity for students to explore their interest of life processes and the world around them from a biological and social perspective. In cooperation with Cornell University and local business and industry, students explore their individual academic interests, be it from veterinary medicine to environmental engineering or anything in between. The integrated approach to teaching allows students to fulfill senior year requirements of English, Government & Economics within the context of life sciences.

Each student works with the instructor to design an experience that would include his or her career interests, such as applied scientific research, landscape architecture, animal behavior or environmental engineering, just to name a few. All Life Sciences students complete a major project in collaboration with Cornell University faculty and staff—some will have an opportunity to have their work published and presented at venues such as a research symposium or various science fairs.

The program is also rich in leadership development and service learning opportunities, as all students learn the art of public speaking and personal communication.
