Welcome to Science 8!
The year will begin with an introduction to science at the secondary school level. We will spend some time reviewing safety expectations and necessary skills (Unit 1). Unit 2, life science, will look at cells, photosynthesis, and micro-organisms. Unit 3, matter, looks at kinetic molecular theory and atomic theory. Unit 4, energy, discusses energy as particles and waves. Unit 5 will cover plate tectonics and Earth's geological processes.
