        Their study of science will continue in Science 7 where the focus of study is Life Science. Students will explore all aspects of life, including cells, genetics, ecology, evolution and human anatomy, to name a few.

        ​As an eighth grade student their science education will include the topics of Chemistry and Physics. Students will learn about matter, the periodic table, bonding of elements, chemical reactions, force, motion, energy, electricity and magnetism.
