The CGHS Science Department is a dynamic and diverse group of dedicated educators seeking to provide real-life science application for our students. Our vision is to provide a consistent, engaging, and relevant learning experience for students throughout their time at Cardinal Gibbons.

“...a recognition that the world is God's loving gift, and that we are called quietly to imitate his generosity in self-sacrifice and good works. ... It also entails a loving awareness that we are not disconnected from the rest of creatures, but joined in a splendid universal communion. - Pope Francis

The mission of the science department is to engage students in the development of logical approaches to attain truths about the natural world and a sense of personal responsibility for the direction of science and technology in the course of their lives.

Thanks to the support of the Science Department and Space Explorers Club, the community launched its first weather balloon. Original launch date was for Earth Day 2018, but due to weather launch was pushed to the week after. Read more about the launch from Ms. Rip's Blog entry. 


Thank You to everyone who made the August 21st Eclipse a huge success. A special thanks Ian Hewitt from the Museum of Natural Science for his talk.  Two Science Teachers and Retired Teacher David Bierlein experienced the totality. Their pictures and video appear below. Enjoy.
