Science

Biotechnology (4111)
Biotechnology is defined as the knowledge of bioprocesses applied to the engineering and use of organisms, cells or bio-molecules to solve problems or make products. This course is designed to give the student a comprehensive study of biotechnology and to prepare them to work in the bioscience industry in the areas of research and development, quality systems, production, clinical testing, and diagnostic work. This in depth look at these systems will develop the skills necessary for a successful career in biotechnology or the ability to succeed in college coursework in this area.

Chemistry (4131)
This course gives the student a comprehensive study of general chemical concepts and their
application in career pathways. This study of will help students develop the skills necessary for development of critical thinking in the work force and real life situations. Concepts taught in this course will prepare students for success in college level coursework in the chemical sciences. Students should have successfully completed Algebra I, and it is highly recommended that the student has successfully completed or concurrently take Algebra II.

Chemistry – Cosmetology (4132)
This course is designed for cosmetology students to be successful on the chemistry and electricity parts of the State Board examination.  It carefully teaches the structure of matter and how it relates to hair, how acids and bases can be used to control the cuticle, and the chemistry of shaping and coloring hair.  Practical electricity and electrotherapy are also thoroughly covered.  This class is rich with experiments and projects.  Craft soaps, bath bombs, DIY shampoos, conditioners, and other beauty products are made and tested.

Pre-Chemistry (4133)
This course gives the student a comprehensive study of general chemical concepts and their application in career pathways. This study of will help students develop the skills necessary for development of critical thinking in the work force and real life situations. Concepts taught in this course will prepare students for success in Chemistry. Students should have successfully completed Algebra I, and it is highly recommended that the student has successfully completed or concurrently take Algebra II. 

Environmental Science (4141)
Environmental Science contains a challenging study in the study of our environment. Connection between science, technology, and society are related to the study with the use of environmental issues. Students will become more informed on the global issues regarding our environment, thereby allowing them to become better decision makers. The Environmental Science course provides an applied science using observations and experimentation. Students will learn to solve environmental problems relating to resource depletion, pollution, and extinction. These issues will explore developing and developed countries, giving the students a global prospective on several environmental concerns. This study of will help students develop the skills necessary for development of critical thinking in the work force and real life situations.
There are no prerequisites for Environmental Science which will allow students from all career pathways to obtain their required science credits.

Physics (4151)
This course gives the student a comprehensive study of general Physics concepts and their application in career pathways. This study will help students develop the skills necessary for development of critical thinking in the work force and real life situations. Concepts taught in this course will prepare students for success in college level coursework in the physical sciences. Students should have successfully completed Algebra I, and it is highly recommended that the student has successfully completed or is concurrently taking Geometry or Algebra II. The course goals for Physics are to:
• Acquire an understanding of the concepts of matter and energy;
• Learn how concepts have developed from earlier ideas and thus to become aware of the methods by which scientific understandings evolve;
• Master some of the quantitative relationships that express these understandings and to acquire skill in using them;
• Develop the ability to recognize, define, and solve problems;
• Understand Physics concepts and how their interactions are involved with technology and career pathways. 
Physics – Electrical (4161)

Electrical Physics will help students in electrical, robotics, welding, HVAC, automotive, power systems, information technology, or anyone interested in electricity understand the physics behind their trade. Fundamentals such as electrostatics, electric current (DC & AC), electric circuits, magnetism, electromagnetism, and radio frequency waves (rf) will clearly be taught. Also heat and thermodynamics will be addressed. There will be a substantial emphasis placed on demonstrations (seeing phenomena first hand), lab experiences (using their concepts), and projects (putting the materials to work in real world use). Prospective students should have a good attitude towards math and be capable with Algebra II.
 
Anatomy & Physiology (4165)
This course follows the curriculum of the Human Biology 103 course taught at
Sinclair Community College. Anatomy/physiology is designed to give the student a comprehensive study of all body system structures and their function. This in depth look at these systems will develop the skills necessary for a successful career in health care or the ability to succeed in college coursework in this area. Students have the opportunity to earn college credit for this course.
