Prerequisite: None

In this science class, students increase their knowledge of the universe from a faith perspective.  Students will:  learn stargazing basics, identify stars, planets, and constellations, discover how the phases of the moon work, tour the universe, explore evidence that shows a young universe, study the latest discoveries of astronomy and lunar science to analyze flawed views of the moon's origin and more! This is not a lab science.

Weekly homework reinforces the concepts taught in class and the instructor is available during live office hours and by email to assist students. Additional time may be required of students to complete labs both with the instructor and independently. Assignments are graded and students receive a mid-term report as well as a year-end course credit report. Students may take this class for Honors credit. The Honors option costs an additional $25 per class. Be sure to check Honors on the registration form.
