Science Olympiad


Science Olympiad and Bioethics: Yearlong course (Science Olympiad 1st Semester and Bioethics 2nd Semester) “Science Olympiads” introduces students to the world of scientific investigation. Students are given a task, and they must find a solution through brain-storming, hypothesis testing, and reflection. Students also participate in friendly competitions to see which group developed the best designs. Students will also have the option to participate against other schools in the Inland Empire Science Olympiad held in March. “Bioethics” is a combination of two Greek words: bios, meaning “life”, and ethos, meaning “behavior”. Specifically, bioethics is the study of controversial topics brought about by advances in biology, medicine, and technology, and how it affects our lives. In this class, students will explore bioethic topics that are currently making headlines in today’s news. After researching the topic, students will hold a debate to discuss the “pros” and “cons” of the issue at hand. This class is not a substitute for the student’s regular Life Science class. Rather, it is designed to supplement the student’s core science class by taking what the student has learned in class and offering “what-if?” and “what-would-you-do?” scenarios. Students will take a position on a topic and use logic and reasoning to discuss and defend their opinion.
