The study of life science extends
from microscopic proteins to entire ecosystems, including an understanding of human body systems. This course emphasizes the relationship between structures and their functions, the
basic cell theory that will help students understand the characteristics of life. The course will include hands-on activities as students build models of cells to learn about multicellular organisms, the role
of genes and the effects of mutation. Students will also use the models to explore how cells use DNA to construct proteins, build biomass, reproduce and create complex multicellular organisms.
