“Science can purify religion from error and superstition. Religion can purify science from idolatry and false absolutes.” ~Pope John Paul II~
Science affects just about every part of all students’ lives from cell phones to the food they eat. In our science class, students learn to recognize and confront preconceptions about concepts. Students are engaged through a blend of inquiry, hands-on/minds-on, and group activities. These processes provide students with the opportunities to develop deeper understanding of content as well as application of that content. The science classroom is more than the development of understanding of content. Students make observations, interpret those observations and analyze the data, formulate conclusions, and communicate their conclusions. Many tools are utilized to help students understand both content and application. Some of the tools and techniques utilized include labs, research, individual, and group activities.
