 Honors Chemistry

Honors Chemistry is an experimental science that combines academic study with the acquisition of practical and investigational skills. It is called the central science as chemical principles underpin both the physical environment in which we live and all biological systems. Honors Chemistry covers the following topics: quantitative chemistry, atomic structure, periodicity, bonding, energetic, kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, oxidation and reduction, measurement and data processing.


DIY I & II the goal of these courses are to return you to tinkering!  You will work with your hands to facilitate your natural creativity, innovation and design. These semester long courses will cover 5 areas of design technology: woodworking, metal fabrication, electronics, coding and rapid prototyping. These courses will be a prerequisite prepare you for the upper level offerings.  


C.A.P.P.S. is a fast-paced year-lon problem solving course that goes beyond a mere transfer of information and rote memorization that has been the norm in more traditional environments. Each quarter brings a new design challenge that you will solve collaboratively with fellow students using a design thinking approach.  C.A.P.P.S. creates an environment where you and your team members are the drivers for discovery and innovation!
