Biology is a wonderful class because everyone is exposed to several different types of sciences! For example, we explore botany, anatomy, biotechnology, zoology, microbiology, and ecology. All of these areas, and so many more, are potential career fields. One can become a forensic biologist, an engineer creating biotechnology, a zoo keeper, a park ranger... As some would say, the possibilities are endless. Equally important, biology does not have to be intimidating. Instead, this class provides an opportunity to answer the why behind big life questions such as: We know we are alive, but why are we classified as alive? Why is antibiotic resistance a problem? Do we need plants to survive? Why is lab safety a big deal? Why do people say, 'I have had too many carbs today.'?
No question is too big or small. By the end of the year, I hope everyone can say, "I enjoyed my biology class!"
