Today’s technical world requires an understanding of science to function effectively in everyday life and to make good choices concerning science-related issues. This is why courses in the sciences are included as an integral part of our general education.
All areas of science are related and interdependent. The division into fields such as chemistry, physics, biology, and geology is done only as a matter of convenience. Specialization is built upon a firm foundation of general fundamental facts. Students should try to take a variety of courses in science to better understand this multifaceted field of study.
Secondary science courses play an important, unique and essential role in today‘s ever changing world. Student‘s knowledge of earth, space, life and physical sciences is critical as they become scientifically literate citizens. All science courses are laboratory and activity-oriented to help develop important skills.
Please note that many colleges require biology, chemistry and physics for admission into science or engineering programs.
