Cobb Middle Applied Science & Technology Magnet Program
The Applied Science and Technology Magnet Program seeks to inspire creativity, stimulate curiosity and empower students to develop a comprehensive understanding of their world through the pursuit of scientific knowledge and investigative skills. Cobb’s magnet curriculum is structured to provide a solid foundation for scientific concepts and increasingly rigorous instruction. Through an exclusive magnet research elective class that uses an inquiry-based approach to curriculum, students will experience lessons in forensics, dissection, and paleontology. These lessons facilitate knowledge constructions of living things and allow students to explore human anatomy, evaluate current global ecological concerns, and uncover the mysteries of genetics, viruses, and microscopy. Magnet students are offered ten high school credits which can accelerate their personal education path.
Students are encouraged to participate in our acclaimed athletic, prestigious fine arts programs, and award winning BETA, robotics club & math competition class. Magnet students are invited on several interactive overnight field trips that enhance classroom learning experiences. Cobb acknowledges students who show promise in the areas of science and research by recommending them for mentorship programs. One program in particular gives students the opportunity to work alongside professional scientists at The National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, located on FSU’s campus, as they apply classroom concepts to real-world applications.Cobb faculty prides itself on our family atmosphere and creating a smooth transition to middle and high school. We will work with you and your child to tailor a personalized schedule to meet the specific needs of your budding scholar.
