Parkridge Christian Academy| MAP 
5600 Coral Ridge Dr, Coral Springs, FL 33076 (Room#: Auditorium)

CSI's After School Program (ASP) are filled with interactive activities that will make science exciting. The program gives parents the opportunity to encourage their children to think, as they engage in the exciting hands-on activities, watch spectacular demonstrations, participate in inquiry-based discussions, and more.

Your child will be filled with knowledge and learn to appreciate science as they discover facts of God’s Creation. No extra work to take home, only something special to remember God as our Creator!

The ASP runs concurrently with the local school calendar. There are four quarters which align with the grading periods of your local school. We meet once a week on Tuesdays.

At Creation Studies Institute we teach the truth of our origins from a creationist’s perspective by, “simply sharing with young and old, God’s wondrous works.”


Topics & Dates:

 
Tuesdays 2:40 pm - 3:40 pm

start of the program.


1st Quarter: “Science Explosion-Chemistry”

August 25 - October 13, 2015
Dive into chemistry and see what it has to offer! We will be mixing chemicals, exploring states of matter, density, and air pressure. What was that explosion over there?

2nd Quarter: “Created in God's Image-Anatomy”
October 20 - December 15, 2015 (off on Nov. 23-27, Dec. 21-Jan.1)
 Did you know that there are over 640 muscles in our bodies. Discover with hands on activities how the complexity and design of the human body and all of the different systems work together.

3rd Quarter: “Ocean Life”
January 5 - March 1, 2016
Enter the fascinating world of animals  that live in the ocean from the smallest to the largest, that reveal designs so complex, they can only be attributed to a Creator. Participate in inter-active demonstrations that challenge evolutionary assumptions!

4th Quarter: “Fun in Motion”
March 29 - May 17, 2016
Who doesn’t love to play with toys?  Did you know there is a science behind the way a toy works (or doesn’t work)?  This class will give you the opportunity to learn about principles in physics such as inertia, kinetic energy, and laws of motion. Come join us and see how learning physics can be lots of fun!!

CSI is pleased to offer a college preparatory biology lab for high school students. The course provides the student with a strong background in biology using a Creationist perspective. Students will acquire laboratory experience covering microscopic techniques, several dissections introducing comparative anatomy and a variety of other biological investigations. Through identifying and understanding how different systems work across groups of organisms, the students will observe and discover the imprint of a Divine Designer in his Creation.

All six classes must be completed for a certificate of completion. The program will provide 30 hours of college preparatory biology lab. There will be a $25.00 Lab book fee which will be provided in the first class. Each student must bring his/her lab book to each class for the remainder of the program. The course will be taught by Mrs. Joanne Rabolli and Dr. Scott McOwen, Veterinarian.

Semester: Topics 2016-2017


Microscope Lab: September 9, 2016
We will investigate the invisible creatures of the Monera & Protista Kingdoms under the microscope. We will also learn how to make slides and use the microscope.

Invertebrate Study: October 14, 2016
We will dissect the worm, grasshopper, starfish, and crayfish to understand God’s spineless creatures.

The Fishes of the Sea and Birds of the Air: November 11, 2016
Created on Day 5 of the Creation Week are the perch and the dogfish, which is a cartilaginous shark. We will also explore birds, how they are able to fly and how they could not have evolved from reptiles (dinosaurs).

Amphibians vs Reptiles: January 13, 2017
What’s the difference? We will dissect the frog and make observations of the functions of the anatomy of the snake. We will compare amphibians versus reptiles to see how they did not evolve from one to the other either.

Internal Structures: February 10, 2017
We will take a close look at the eye, heart, and kidney. We will observe how God designed each with highly specialized functions.

Fetal Pig Lab: March 10, 2017
We will look in detail at the design of the body systems as a functioning unit. We will analyze how all the systems had to work together perfectly from the very first time, leaving no possibility for the development of each system separately over time.
