This curriculum, titled “Faith and Science,” is designed to help high school students think about the relationship between their faith and the science that so deeply impacts daily life today. Each of the three sessions present students with relevant, sometimes challenging scientific research and encourages lively activities and conversation about how their faith intersects with that information. You can download and use the resource as independently or as a whole unit.
