Science

Astronomy is a fusion of concepts and applications from physics, chemistry, geology, biology and mathematics. As such, students experience science in a broad integrated manner. Throughout the course, mathematics is incorporated as a tool for understanding. Students explore the ever-advancing astronomy topics through multiple print and digital sources, including online and print material research. A variety of hands-on and virtual investigations support the understanding of astronomy concepts. The implications of the technologies and theories of astronomy upon Earth’s societies are examined and discussed. Larger scale projects give students the opportunity to incorporate astronomy concepts in creative endeavors.
