Science Technology in Society (11-12)

Environmental Science courses examine the mutual relationships between organisms and their environment. In studying the interrelationships among plants, animals, and humans, these courses usually cover the following subjects: photosynthesis, recycling and regeneration, ecosystems, population and growth studies, pollution, and conservation of natural resources

Computer Applications (8)

Students will use technology tools to manage personal schedules and contact information, create memos and notes, prepare simple reports and other business communications, manage computer operations and file storage, and use electronic mail, Internet applications and search for and access information. Students will develop skills related to word processing, database management and spreadsheet applications. Students will demonstrate knowledge of hardware components, classes of software, basic data communications components and trends, and technical knowledge of the Internet including Internet protocols. Students will demonstrate understanding of Internet security issues, how to use and troubleshoot Internet connections including Internet software, how to use virus protection techniques and how to use the Internet to communicate and collaborate.

 

Chemistry (10)

Chemistry courses involve studying the composition, properties, and reactions of substances. These courses typically explore such concepts as the behaviors of solids, liquids, and gases; acid/base and oxidation/reduction reactions; and atomic structure. Chemical formulas and equations and nuclear reactions are also studied.

 

Project Management (11)

Project Management and Resource Scheduling Project Management courses provide students with the information and skills necessary for success in managing projects and operating logistical ventures in technology, business, and industry. This course covers scheduling of resources (including personnel, budget, timelines, and equipment), utilization of Gantt charts, economic principles within the workplace, and risk management. Other possible topics include developing a business plan, finance, business law, marketing and promotion strategies, insurance employee/employer relations, problem-solving and decision-making, and building leadership skills. These courses may also incorporate a survey of the careers within technology and engineering industries.

Anatomy and Physiology (10-11)

The human body and biological systems.  Students learn anatomical terminology, cells and tissues, study functional systems (skeletal, muscular, digestive, etc.) and dissect organs of select systems.

 

Emerging Technologies (12)

Emerging Technologies courses emphasize students’ exposure to and understanding of new and emerging technologies. The range of technological issues will be taught through the course content of chemical analysis, electrochemistry, chromatography,  acid/base chemistry, chemical equilibrium, forensic chemistry, and biochemistry.
