Science at Trinity is great because of the variety. You will cover topics ranging from ecology to chemical analysis, from anatomy to astrophysics; all of it covered in engaging, interactive ways. Dissecting eyeballs and livers, designing crumple zones and exploding stuff are all commonplace in the science department!
