The seventh grade course will focus on the transfer of energy through living and nonliving systems on Earth. Students will learn about the different sources of energy, the processes that change energy from one form to another, the effect energy has on our weather patterns and the processes that affect how energy is transferred through an ecosystem. Students will explore these concepts through hands-on laboratory experiences and real world case studies. Students enrolled in 3075P will be required to conduct an independent science research project that will allow students the opportunity to explore a specific topic of interest at a greater depth.

The eighth grade course will focus on the processes that cause changes in living and nonliving systems on Earth. Students will learn how the Earth’s systems can change through constructive and destructive processes, how gene mutations can result in changes that can improve a species survivability over time, and how all of these changes are governed by matter and its interactions. Students will explore these concepts through hands-on laboratory experiences and real world case studies. Students enrolled in 3086P will be required to conduct an independent science research project that will allow students the opportunity to explore a specific topic of interest at a greater depth.
