Calvert 8th Grace Science is an intermediate course that covers the structure and properties of matter, measurement and mathematics of science, geology, oceanography, natural cycles and resources, science today and tomorrow, and astronomy. The curriculum seeks to develop students' ability to be aware of and participate in scientific inquiry, while experiments and projects are designed to capitalize on students’ natural curiosity.
Students at this level should show an understanding of interrelationships between organisms and the environment, recognize patterns in systems, and expand their knowledge of cellular dimensions of living systems. Collectively, this should help students develop and expand on their subject-matter knowledge base.
