"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities - his eternal power and Devine nature - have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse." Romans 1:20
Science is the avenue through which man reveals God's "…eternal power and Devine nature…" and affirms that God is the master designer and creator of the universe. As man investigates each aspect of God's creation, he becomes more acutely aware and established in the fundamental belief that creation is of "Intelligent Design." Therefore, he also becomes grounded in the truth of Jeremiah 29:11 – "…God has a purpose and plan for his life…"
Science education is an arena that affords man the opportunity to study all of God's creation beginning with the minute parts of an atom to His most brilliant masterpiece, the human body. Approaching science from a biblical perspective enables each student to realize God's handiwork. As he studies the intricate details and interrelationships of all creation, he gains an awareness that each aspect of God's master design has a purpose.
Science education involves a vast array of information. This information must be age appropriate and interconnected with the truth of God's word. Therefore, the Science Department's mandate is to provide and equip each student with purposeful activities that promote inquiry and are conducive to learning. Activities, such as hands-on experiments, online expeditions, compelling reading content, detailed graphics and visuals should all be related to the scientific method to enhance learning and for students to draw biblical wisdom from their knowledge.
