Biology is a laboratory course in which students explore the world God gifted us through the lens of biblical truth. The course guides students through the study of living and nonliving systems and how they interact with one another. They do this by posing questions and seeking answers through scientific inquiry but also examine these answers through a biblical lens. Discovery takes place through observation and data collection. Students are introduced to the structure, function, diversity, and advancement of living matter. This is a course with real relevance, encouraging curiosity and providing opportunity for students to work on hands-on lab activities and develop relationships through collaborative learning. Engaging in the study of biological science broadens the picture of the world God gifted us.
