About CLRC Science Classes
Curiosity is one of the mainsprings of classical science. When a student asks how something works, he or she is moving beyond observation to theory. The seeds of higher learning have been planted. CLRC offers in-depth classes on various topics including astronomy–the quintessential classical science. Content is based on introductory college material, which is scaled to the appropriate grade level. Each discipline is taught organically rather than as so many individual facts (the “Jeopardy” method). This involves discerning the connections between ideas, facts, and observations in order to form an unbroken web of knowledge. CLRC science classes also consider the philosophical ramifications of science, allowing students to contemplate the place which science occupies in the larger constellation of human knowledge.
