Physical science is designed to be an introduction to the many disciplines of science that include Chemistry, Physics, Earth and Space Sciences. We will learn aspects of each discipline and how they are interrelated. We will follow the Next Generation Science Standards in order to investigate the various disciplines of science and how they relate to our lives. We will use our knowledge to tackle real world problems here on Maui and investigate ways Maui and Hawaii can become more sustainable using the many tools science provides.
Topics are explored through reading, online assignments, lecture, and student-driven projects. Strong emphasis is placed on hands-on activities and students are expected to be active participants in class discussions and activities.
