Biology 20 students study the biosphere, energy flow in cellular respiration and photosynthesis energy exchange in ecosystems and the digestive, respiratory, excretory and circulatory systems of the human organism.
Laboratory work and field studies reinforce concepts learned in the classroom.

Biology 30 focuses on human electrochemical systems as they control the effects of environmental change and reproduction and development. Students study the mechanisms for passing on genetic information which cause variation at the level of the individual, populations and communities. There are a variety of laboratory investigations and many discussions on research into current biological problems.
