The goal of biology is to teach scientific content and method and the biblical principles necessary to interpret and apply this knowledge in a God-honoring way. Students will learn cell biology, genetics, the history of life, taxonomy, microbiology, botany, zoology, ecology, and human anatomy and physiology. Current issues such as abortion, stem cell research, biotechnology, euthanasia, environmentalism, genetic engineering, AIDS, and cancer will also be discussed. About 20% of class time is spent in lab activities, such as demonstrations, dissections, and experiments.
