Science 8 explores a range of topics in physical, life, and earth and space sciences including energy, forces and motion, astronomy, waves, and biology. Students use inquiry to investigate phenomena using the science and engineering practices of the Next Generation Science Standards. Students develop their ability to ask testable questions, construct models, design and conduct investigations, collect and analyze data, formulate explanations and scientific arguments, and obtain and communicate information. Learning in this course fosters a curiosity and love of science and equips students with the necessary skills to formulate investigations of real-world phenomena and design solutions for real-world engineering challenges.
