WELCOME TO SCIENCE!
Integrated science I is a course designed to allow students to investigate and solve problems drawing on real-world phenomena from physical, life and earth sciences. The course is also designed to address questions about how students and humans both relate to and impact their world. These questions can be viewed through technological advancement such as renewable energy, cellular advancements or designing new sports equipment. These questions can also be seen in the ways the earth’s systems interact with themselves though systems and structures such as plate tectonics, ecosystems and trends on the periodic table.
Integrated science II is a course designed to allow students to investigate and solve problems drawing on real-world phenomena from physical, life, and earth sciences. Scale is important for this course as students will investigate cycles of energy and matter at both the largest and smallest scales. This will include how Earth’s history is connected to heat and thermodynamics, the formation of the universe, and the organization of multicellular organisms- including: process energy, division, and how organisms pass on genetic material for future generations. Finally, they will see how human impact can disrupt these cycles to the detriment of uncontrolled cell growth and global climate change.
