Fundamental physical science principles are introduced through student involvement in hands-on learning activities. A well-balanced introduction to chemistry and physics is provided as students explore the periodic table, chemical reactions, and the laws of motion and energy. Practical application and authenticity are stressed with an emphasis on writing skills, technology, and career investigations.
Honors Physical Science is an accelerated course that covers the same concepts and principles as Physical Science, but in more depth and at a rapid pace. This allows the student to examine current topics of physical science, participate in enrichment activities, research topics more thoroughly, and participate in more hands-on laboratory experiences.
