  1. It teaches problem solving and critical thinking and logic skills. Students lean both inductive and deductive reasoning from Science study, how to make inferences and the logical conclusions of things. It also teaches excellent communication skills, as the Scientific Method and Lab Reports demand efficient and effective communication.
  2. It awakens science students to the wonder of Creation. Science trains students to notice both the very small, the very large, patterns, anomalies nad more. Throughout this study, Intelligent Design becomes very clear. So many great Scientists have been great men and women of God. Studying Science doesn’t draw people away from God, it draws them to God!
