Physical Science

Earth, Sky and Air

Gateway to further study

We share our world with a variety of non-living things that, despite their lack of breath or pulse, have a significant impact on the quality of our lives.  

That’s why as a society we worry about our carbon footprint, search the sky for answers about our own planet and uncover the mysteries of history in fossilized rock.

The physical sciences include chemistry, astronomy, geology and more. We offer courses in each of these areas, including an introductory Physical Science course that provides a gateway to further study.
