This course is a comprehensive treatment of physical science topics, including
the structure and properties of matter, changes in matter, motion, work and energy,
heat, light, electric charges and currents, sound, and careers in science. Laboratory work is an integral part of the course, together with the development of study skills.PHYSICAL SCIENCEThis course is a study of physical science topics including the properties of matter, the structure of matter, motion, work, energy and changes in matter, light, electric charges, current, sound, and careers in science.

Meteorology (Semester Course)
This semester long course introduces the basic concepts of meteorology in a hands-on, interactive format. The nature of the physical processes responsible for changes in daily weather will be discussed. Computer based exercises during classes will use current and recent weather data to investigate phenomena. Students will be provided with a first look at various aspects of meteorology, including solar radiation, global circulation, winds, stability, precipitation processes, weather systems, and severe weather. Basic physical principles behind the weather, terminology and weather analysis and prediction will be explored. To elect this course the student should have some knowledge of chemistry.
Astronomy Course Description (Semester Course)
Astronomy is a semester course that uses NASA resources to explore the history of worldwide space programs, the International Space Station, and efforts for a mission to Mars. Topics will also include information you need to identify obvious stars and constellations. Students will learn how stars “live and die,” unusual astronomical events (variable stars, quasars, black holes, etc.), formation of stars, the solar system and galaxies, movements of and distances to stars and galaxies, and some of the tools and techniques astronomers use to learn about the universe. To elect this course the student should have some knowledge of chemistry.
