Science in the Atomic Age will be used to teach a wide range of topics that are of interest to modern scientists. It starts by describing our current understanding of atoms, molecules, the chemicals that are necessary for life, DNA, and cells. The course then uses what the student has learned to describe the living world. It discusses the levels of organization found in creation and spends time discussing topics at each level. This course is intended for seventh grade.
A syllabus will be provided by the first of September. The syllabus will let the student know what reading and lab work needs to be completed prior to class.
