Welcome to the Science Department. In order prepare our students for a world that is increasingly centered on information and technology, the Science Department at Moreau offers a solid science program that is both flexible and diverse. In addition to the three core science courses of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, we offer electives that allow students to pursue related fields. In life science, we offer Anatomy & Physiology, and Kinesiology. In physical science we offer Engineering I, which has an emphasis on Civil Engineering. Additional Engineering courses are planned for the next few years. We also offer an excellent Advanced Placement science program where students can take AP Biology, AP Chemistry, and AP Physics B.
MCHS Innovation Lab
The MCHS Innovation Lab is a place where students will gain experience with 21st-Century tools and state-of-the-art technology that is utilized at colleges like Yale and Cornell -- and industry leaders like NASA.
A major feature of the lab is Z-Space, a virtual reality program that allows students to to compare, dissect, analyze, measure, annotate and explore more than 500 3D models.
MCHS Design Studio
- MCHS requires 20 units of Science: 10 units in a Life Science and 10 units in a Physical Science.
- UC and CSU require completion of at least 2 of the 3 following courses: Biology, Chemistry, or Physics.
- Additional elective courses and advanced courses are suggested for those who are interested in engineering, science, or applied science majors in college. The Admissions Office will make course recommendations for 9th graders.
