​Earth Science is a high school science course that explores Earth’s structure, interacting systems, and place in the universe. The course uncovers concepts and processes found in: Astronomy – Earth’s place in and interaction with space; Geology – physical structure and dynamic processes; Meteorology – atmosphere, weather and climate, and Oceanography – oceans and marine life. Students will have the opportunity to evaluate and explore many scientific concepts by participating in interactive lab sessions with Smart Science Labs and completing projects designed to improve the understanding of Earth and its dynamic functions. Upon completion of Earth Science students will gain increased awareness about where Earth came from; how Earth functions and sustains life; and how the many systems and processes of Earth rely on and balance one another. They will improve scientific evaluation skills and apply them to the study of Earth’s physical geography and dynamic processes and discover tools that allow for the study of Earth and its further exploration.
