Master unifying themes in life science and relate them to the human body through activities about cells, genetics, organ systems, health and wellness, and evolution.
Explore how evolution is fundamental to life science while investigating topics of cells, genetics and natural selection.
Explore, learn and implement hands-on and inquiry-based teaching techniques.
Understand that cells are the basic unit of structure and function in living things.
Learn DNA functions as the genetic material of living organisms.
Investigate how evolution is driven by the process of natural selection of organisms best adapted to their environment.
Discover the evidence for evolution and how it is integral to other disciplines of science.
Explore how the processes of the fundamentals of life science have an impact on our daily lives.
