Class Description

In this introductory science course we will explore the history of science, and how science currently affects our lives. We will consider the application of science in technology, the mechanics of how our physical world is changing (geology), and the diversity of life in our world. We will end the year with a study of the human body and its organ systems. The class emphasizes a hands on approach with a lot of equipment.
