Stephanie Musilek is a learning facilitator of the science courses at BHOLC. The science courses are rich in science concepts and course activities. Laboratory is a necessary element of each of the science courses. Some of the laboratories are completely virtual, some have an accompanying video in which the lab was performed, and some must be performed by the student using common household items. Manipulation, observation, and discovery are key to learning science concepts!
