This semester long high school science course will go beyond the limitations of the human eye and take a closer look at the world of microbes. The biochemistry, metabolism, growth, and genetics of prokaryotes, eukaryotes, and viruses will be investigated. Applications to the medical world will be incorporated as well as disease and epidemiology.
COURSE PREREQUISITES: Algebra 1, Chemistry, Biology
This course will be set up like a flipped classroom where students will be required to complete weekly academic work on their own including reading free text material, watching videos, and viewing PowerPoints. The focus during our virtual time together will be labs and other hands-on activities that match the weekly concept (some small purchases may be required for at home labs). Projects will be used as assessment only for the course.
Teacher: Brooklyne Coulter
