Earth Science is an introductory college preparatory laboratory science course designed to provide students with an understanding of earth systems, air, land and water. Topics studied include areas of meteorology, geology, astronomy, climatology, and oceanography. Earth Science provides students with a framework for understanding weather forecasting, volcanic activity, earthquakes, storms, polar caps, the atmosphere, and plate tectonics. Laboratory experiments demonstrate the experimental foundations of the subject matter, clarify and reinforce content, teach laboratory techniques and safety. Skills required to write formal lab reports are developed in this course. This course is recommended for ninth or tenth graders.

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education. Martin Luther King, Jr.
