Biblical Equipping for Excellence in Life and Service

 

 

 

 

 

 

The STEM Department develops students who are well-grounded in the basic sciences and math taught from the biblical worldview. Students will be able to solve applied science and math problems, use the scientific method, and learn to critically evaluate recent scientific studies. They will learn how to defend their faith in the areas of science and math. These objectives are accomplished through completing courses in biology, chemistry, physical science, nutritional science, and mathematics.

STEM Department Objectives

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the fundamentals of science and math and apply this knowledge to practical applications.
  • Distinguish between the naturalistic and biblical worldviews of science and formulate an accurate and effective defense of their faith.
  • Develop an understanding of the scientific method and be able to create properly designed studies and evaluate data from these studies.
  • Be able to analyze the shortcomings and strengths of popular science-related news to determine its validity.
  • Be able to solve complex math equations and apply mathematical equations to common problems.
