Summer school science courses offered for credit:
Great for the student who loved the human body unit from their biology class. Explore all the systems of the body in the context of homeostasis, how they work together, diseases, and development. A rigorous life science course where the student should be ready to investigate how his or her own body works in the lab, as well as participate in dissections.
Not only do students learn the basics of how life works from cells to ecology, they now are able to investigate the impacts of their actions on our home planet using technology in the lab and in their greater community.. Students are introduced to the rigors of the scientific method to gather and analyze reliable data, and begin to design their own experiments to solve real problems.
Whether you live on the coast or completely landlocked, the ocean is a fascinating topic. This course covers the chemical and physical aspects of various marine environments, elucidating and comparing the different requirements of organisms to survive and thrive. This is a fun course for students to continue to explore some often overlooked biological topics.
Zoology is the study of animals from the sponge to the elephant. Zoologists study everything from the single cell to the entire organism and population of any given animal – taking into consideration the larger environmental conditions in which animals live. Similar to foundational science courses, Zoology is dependent upon understanding the basic nuts and bolts of how life functions.
Astronomy is an advanced course in which students learn about the universe in which they inhabit. Theories and laws regarding the creation of the universe and gravitation are investigated and studied. Students should be comfortable with basic math formulas using radicals, exponents, and fractions.
This introductory course builds on topics from earth and physical science, such as fundamentals of geology, meteorology, oceanography, astronomy, and Earth’s structure and resources. Students also learn the rigors of the scientific method and proper laboratory techniques and procedures; this is a great choice for a student’s first high school laboratory class.
This advanced course is dedicated to understanding the interactions between Earth’s natural systems and the demands placed on them by the human population. Students explore natural phenomena and resource cycles, how we use and impact these systems, and potential solutions for the resulting consequences of resource mismanagement and exploitation. No matter where you live, there is plenty to study in your local environment all the way to the entire biosphere.
From observation techniques to full-blown crime scene investigations, students learn the reality and science behind the crime dramas on TV in this immersive, hands-on course.
Chemistry makes the invisible visible and explains how microscopic particles and interactions dictate the macroscopic world around us. Students study the atomic theory, molecular forces, and energetics that, when understood on a theoretical and practical level, begin to make sense of the world.
This rigorous physics course explores major concepts in physics both conceptually and mathematically. While not calculus-based, students should be highly competent in formula manipulation and all major mathematical operations. Topics include Newtonian Mechanics such as motion, forces, and conservation of energy, as well as thermodynamics, waves, electricity, and magnetism.
This course covers all of the same concepts as Physics, including motion, energy, forces, thermodynamics, electricity, and quantum physics; it simplifies the more challenging mathematics. Students investigate the same topics and complete identical or comparable labs to meet the same learning outcomes through a more hands-on and accessible learning experience.
