SCIENCE DEPARTMENT

Mission:
The mission of the Science department is to instill in students an understanding of God as the author and designer of all things, and develop an in-depth knowledge of the universe through scientific study. Students will learn to make connections between physical and biological sciences, and develop an understanding of the role science plays in the 21st century world.

Successful students will:
1. Develop an understanding of science from a Christian worldview as a way of understanding the physical world around them as a complex interrelationship of natural phenomena orchestrated by God
2. Perceive patterns and regularity in the world around them, make predictions, and test those predictions against evidence and reason
3. Become critical thinkers who interpret information based on evidence and logic
4. Use technological tools appropriately in gathering and analyzing data
5. Appreciate science as a relevant part of everyday life and its practical application in the world around them, valuing science as a tool to further God’s kingdom
