Course Description

This course enables students to understand basic concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science, and physics; to develop skills in the processes of scientific inquiry; and to relate science to technology, society, and the environment. Students will learn scientific theories and conduct investigations related to sustainable ecosystems; atomic and molecular structures and the properties of elements and compounds; the universe and its properties and components; and the principles of electricity.

 

Course Rationale

The purpose of Science at Guido de Brès is to develop students’ ability to be reflective, critical, and creative thinkers, as well as discerning believers, who can apply their knowledge to the world around them. This involves developing a sense of awe for the ordered and intricate nature of Creation while understanding the potentials and limitations of Creation and of science’s ability to explain and use it. Students will develop their understanding of the relationships between science, technology, and society. There will be an emphasis on personal responsibility in making wise decisions regarding the use of nature, science and technology for ethical and stewardly reasons – in using them to God’s glory. Through all of this, students will be encouraged to have a curiosity, intrigue and enjoyment in studying God’s Creation, especially as it relates to the student’s everyday life.
