Creation Discovery Museum | MAP
2701 W. Cypress Creek Rd. Ft. Lauderdale, Fl 33309

CSI is offering a college preparatory chemistry lab for high school students. The students will be able to experience Chemistry presented from a Creation perspective. The course is designed to give students extensive laboratory experience covering the nature of chemistry, the classification, structure, and changes in matter, atomic theory, the periodic table, chemical bonding, formulas, reactions, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, kinetics, acids and bases, atomic structure, molecular geometry, the gas laws, and equilibrium.

All six classes must be completed for a certificate of completion. The program will provide 30 hours of college preparatory chemistry 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 led by Johnny Maury, M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering.

High School Biology Lab for Homeschoolers


High School Biology Lab for Homeschoolers

 

Creation Discovery Museum | MAP
2701 W. Cypress Creek Rd. Ft. Lauderdale, Fl 33309

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Afterschool Programs at The Westminster Academy

Afterschool programs for children


After School Enrichment Program

 


 
Westminster Academy (WA) | MAP
5601 N. Federal HWY, Ft. Lauderdale, Fl 33308 (Room: 110 Art Room )

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 Thursdays.

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:

 
Thursdays 3:15 p.m.-4:45 p.m.

1st Quarter: “ Doodads & Thingamabob’s
August 24 - October 12, 2017
Investigating how gadget’s work can be exciting.  From gravity to gears, we are going to learn about the physics principles through hands-on science experiments that are lots of fun!

2nd Quarter: “ Tiny Things in a Big World
October 19 - December 14, 2017 (off on Nov. 24, Dec. 22-Jan.2)
Invisible Things- a look at microscopic things and what they do in our world.


3rd Quarter: “ Let’s Rock with Rocks
January  4 - March 1, 2018
Your child will enjoy a time of investigating rocks and minerals, soil, volcanoes, and other geological phenomena on the earth. Each student will begin to make their very own rock collection that they can take home.

4th Quarter: “Exploring Flight”
March 15 - May 3, 2018 (off on March 9, April 13)
There are invisible things all around us that are necessary for life! We will find out what they are and what their jobs are. There are Agents of Decay...to cause a change! There are bacteria IN & ON you that you NEED! But we will discover the enemies that try to sneak in and TAKE OVER to destroy things. How do we fight them?
