Environmental Science incorporates biology, chemistry, physics and physical geology and introduces students to key concepts, principles, and theories within environmental science.
Food Science (ECC)
Study how biology principles apply to the composition of foods, food nutrition and development, food processing, and storage. Food Science is designed to reinforce and enhance the student’s knowledge of scientific principles and processes through the study of foods and nutrition. Students will be involved in hands-on laboratory activities which verify the scientific concepts presented.
Anatomy and Physiology
Study the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the human body with a specialized focus on the head and neck. Topics to be addressed include the skeletal, muscular, integumentary, and nervous systems.
College Anatomy & Physiology (FCC campus only - college credit available)
This dual credit, introductory college human anatomy course, is offered in partnership with Hocking College. Students who meet the qualification requirements will earn high school credit for science (advanced biology) as well as 4 semester hours of credit from Hocking College. Prerequisite: B average in the previous college prep science course and placement at the appropriate college level on the COMPASS test.
This advanced course involves the study of motion and energy, with emphasis on kinetics, gravity, momentum, potential and kinetic energy, electricity, forces, sound waves, and modern physics. This course will prepare students for post- high school physics courses as well as an understanding of the world around them.
A foundation in chemistry concepts and chemistry laboratory skills. Topics include: metric system, phase and chemical changes, chemical reactions, periodic table, and others. Includes the study of the composition, structure, properties of, and changes in matter, including the accompanying energy phenomena.
