Course Description: This course will look at the world from a creationist position and topics are all presented with an eye towards God’s role in everyday life.

We will be studying various topics during this course and one of the primary topics will be an introduction to Anatomy & Physiology which examines the awe-inspiring design of the human body as students study the structure, function, and regulation of the cardiovascular, respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems. Students will discover how their heart and lungs function, the intricacies of the musculoskeletal system, how blood pressure is regulated, and so much more!

Almost every class day will include hands-on experiments which will explore the intersection of science and God’s blueprints for life. We will explore examples of God’s incredible design in nature and discover how His design has inspired man-made designs for batteries, human organ repair, micro-lenses, automotive engineering, paint, and even credit card security!

Students should be expected to work on assignments at home at least 3 days each week.
