    Physical science is a year-long laboratory course that covers basic high school physics and chemistry concepts as well as engineering standards. These concepts are applied to Earth and space science phenomenon. Students learn about atomic structure, chemical reactions, types of energy transformations, forces, and motion. These concepts are used to investigate changes in geology, meteorology, and astronomy over time. Students use observations, laboratory investigations, and complex engineering projects utilizing the engineering design process to analyze and understand the science of everyday phenomena. This laboratory course prepares students for future science and engineering courses.
