    Honors Geo-Physical Science is an accelerated investigation-driven course designed to develop scientific literacy and an understanding of how our lives are impacted by global dynamics.  The course content will include and go beyond that required in the Geo-Physical Science curriculum with a faster pace and with a greater expectation for independence. The ability to independently problem solve, collect, manipulate and analyze information and / or data are expected at the Honors level.
