In laboratory sessions, St. John’s students pursue the fundamental questions of physics, biology, and chemistry to understand the process by which science attempts to explain nature. Laboratory consists of the following:
Two class sessions per week in the first year and three in the third and fourth years of study.
Observational biology, genetics, evolution, and molecular biology; studies of matter and measurement leading to the atomic theory of chemistry; topics in physics including mechanics, optics, heat, electricity, magnetism, and quantum mechanics.
Through careful observation, questioning, reading and conversation, and experimentation.
To gain knowledge of and reflect upon the scientific enterprise that has shaped the world in which we live.
