Science is defined as the observation, identification, description, experimental investigation, and theoretical explanation of phenomena.
It helps you understand the workings of the world around you and why things behave the way they do. It answers questions and provides insight into both the life sciences and the natural sciences as you continue your journey through life.
Welcome to Middle College Science.
This site contains several pages of introductory information, a brief personal summary, essential science class information, and course outlines for each science class. In addition there are a few video links for new students to view and selected lessons which can help with some of the more challenging science topics. Stop by to say hello or send me an email with any questions.
Thanks and have a great year!
