Honors Biology

Lab biology is a hands-on science course that will provide students with experiences to meet the graduation standards for both science practices (What do scientists do?) and life science content (What do scientists know about living systems?)    Students will be exploring essential questions such as: What is life? How do scientists study life?  What are living things made of?  How does life sustain and perpetuate itself? How has life changed over time?  Students will do so by participating in class discussions, performing lab/field experiments, interpreting/analyzing data, modeling biological phenomena, reading basic texts, and communicating science in written and in oral format.  One major goal is to be able to apply basic biology content to your everyday experience. This course meets the requirements of a “lab science credit” as defined by colleges and universities for students who plan to pursue higher education.
