This is a two-year science course designed to give students broad exposure to science concepts inBiology, Chemistry, Earth Science, and Physics within an integrated framework aligned to the newConnecticut Science Standards (CT-NGSS). Students study big ideas such as “What is it all made of?”and “How do humans influence the flow of energy and matter on Earth?” Students generate the questionsthey need answers to in order to build their understanding. Students collaborate and engage in argumentfrom evidence, develop and revise models, and carry out investigations to come to an understanding ofthe world around them. This course is for students who like to look at the big picture. It compacts thecurriculum of three years of traditional science into two, allowing students to take a broader range ofscience courses their junior and senior years.
Requested competency code:
- Lab Science
In order to be reviewed as a laboratory science, we will need a list of physical laboratory experiments completed for this course and number of hours students spend doing laboratory assignments each week.
