Science
  • Biology I (1 credit)
    The biology course is divided into seven sections.  characteristics of life, heredity, changes, diversity, energy within the cell, homeostasis, and human health.  Audio-visual aids, and lab exercises will be used to supplement the course content.

    Prerequisite:  Physical Science

  • Biology II (1 credit)
    This course is the study of the anatomical and physiological mechanisms in the human body.  Topics of study will be biochemistry, histology, the integumentary system, skeletal system, muscular system, nervous system, cardiovascular system,urinary system, and the male and female reproductive systems.  Field trips, audio-visual aids, lab exercises and dissections will be used to supplement the course content.

    Prerequisites:  Biology I and Physical Science or Chemistry

  • Chemistry (1 credit)
    This course will encompass a study of elements and their periodic function, basic atomic theory, application and use of moles, nomenclature, writing and balancing chemical equations, gas laws, acid-base theory, and basic laboratory techniques will be studied.

    Prerequisite:  Credit for Algebra I

  • Environmental Science (1 credit)
    This is an interdisciplinary course connected with both the natural functioning of ecosystems and the problems that arise from disturbances of environmental processes.  The participants will use activities, lab exercises, and research skills to investigate and interpret the consequences of environmental change – both natural and human-related.

    Prerequisite:  None

  • Physical Science (1 credit)
    The students will demonstrate minimal laboratory skills, classification, and other research skills.  This course is divided into seven sections:  Physical science fundamentals, force and energy, nature of matter, patterns of matter, interactions with matter, waves, light, sound, and energy resources.  Audio-visual aids, activities, and lab exercises will be used to supplement the course content.  A science fair project is required.

    Prerequisites:  None
