In Honors Biology, students who have a foundation in physics and chemistry eagerly apply that knowledge to the study of biology as they examine Creation. Students evaluate all topics from a biblical worldview, including the bioethics of gene editing and the controversies in evolution. As they develop an understanding of current biological theories, students sharpen their critical thinking skills. To increase skills in scientific enterprise and inquiry, students perform hands-on labs at home. Topics include: basic biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, evolution, the form and function of organisms in the six kingdoms, human physiology and ecology.
