Biology is the study of life. From exploring DNA and cells to understanding complex environmental issues, students will be empowered to make informed decisions and conduct research about environmental and medical issues that our world is facing today. This course contains engaging labs that can be completed virtually or in person. The first semester focuses on microbiology; students will light food on fire to complete a calorimetry lab, isolate the DNA of various organisms, observe cells (including their own) under a microscope, and make creative cell models. The second semester focuses on how organisms relate to one another and their environments. We’ll study relationships between genetics and disease, explore cancer, dissect small organisms, and learn about environmental factors that are threatening our local ecosystems. Throughout the course, various careers are highlighted to provide students context of how they could become a scientist in the field of biology. The textbook Biology by Prentice Hall is provided by Ms. Kirsch to students for the year.
