Open to: 9
NOTE: All 9th grade students shall enroll in 9th Grade Physical Science & Engineering as their science course unless it has been recommended by a science teacher that they move directly to AP Environmental Science.
This is a Freshman only course. The course is focused on the principles of physics, earth and space science, and engineering. It is designed to be a hands-on, project-based class and will prepare students for upper level science courses, and relevant science and engineering career fields. This class will prepare students for the Next Generation Science Assessment (NGSA), and meet the Earth and Space requirements for the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
