The Mitchell Academy of Science and Technology (MAST) was created in 2003 for the purpose of providing extraordinary elective and extracurricular science opportunities for students. A generous donation by the Edward D. and Anna Mitchell Family Foundation and the Kayla Mitchell Foundation made the Academy a reality.
Today, Milken's Science Department provides core lab courses in the fields of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy & Physiology, Sports Medicine, Environmental Science, and Neuroscience, while the MAST program encompasses a wide variety of elective and extracurricular programs in the areas of science and technology, described below.
The MAST Room, itself a fully functional science lab, is located in the center of our campus in our Science Department quad, which also features lab spaces specially designed to support our Biology, Chemistry, and Physics programs. This hub of science teaching and learning is ideally situated above the Esther and Sol Smith Family Library and below the Guerin Family Institute, where students have access to state-of-the-art research databases, collaborative learning spaces, design software, engineering machinery, and teleconferencing technology.
