High School Science

WWTC offers lab science courses taught by Oklahoma Certified science instructors to 11th and 12th grade high school students enrolled in our programs. Tenth grade Biomedical Sciences and Computer Science Academy students can also take lab science courses through the tech center that qualify for Oklahoma Promise requirements.

LEARNING ACTIVITIES

Students participate in real-world, hands-on labs and activities and gain content knowledge that is applicable to their pgorams. They will be engaged and develop problem-solving strategies that help them understand and retain the content knowledge. The science curriculum aligns to the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Science.

All courses include labs and activities that provide an opportunity for students to explore and connect scientific theories and ideas with real-life examples.

Areas explored include:

Physics
Motion in One and Two Dmiensions
Forces
Gravitation
Electric Force
Magnetism

Chemistry
Stoichiometry
Chemical Reactions
Atomic Structure
Bonding
Solutions

Environmental Science
Biomes
Ecosystems
Aquatic Ecosystems
Weather and Climate
Pollution

ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY

Anatomy & Physiology is a systematic approach to studying the human body and its processes. It is an in-depth study into the regions of the human body and its functions. The course is broken into the different body systems and the functions they perform.

CHEMISTRY

Students explore the fundamental principles of chemistry which characterize the properties of matter and how it reacts. Computer-based and traditional laboratory techniques are used to obtain, organize, and analyze data. Conclusions are developed using both qualitative and quantitative procedures. Topics include, but are not limited to, measurement, atomic structure, electron configuration, the periodic table bonding, gas laws, properties of liquids and solids, solutions, stoichiometry, reactions, kinetics, equilibrium, acids and bases, and nuclear chemistry.

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE

This laboratory-based science class emphasizes the application of scientific concepts to the understanding and solution of environmental problems. Topics discussed include ethics and policy, earth systems, ecology, conservation, evolution, human population growth, chemical hazards, agriculture, mining, water pollution, air pollution, global climate change, non-renewable energy, renewable energy, and waste management.

COOPERATING PARTNER SCHOOLS

Graham-Dustin, Hanna, Holdenville, Mason, Moss, Okemah, Weleetka, and Wetumka.

Note: In order for a student to participate in the cooperative math and science agreement, their home high school must be a participating member. Contact your school counselor for assistance.
