“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?”
The Foundations of Science introduces children to the wonders of the natural world in light of God’s providential care over creation.
This eight-part series covers an extensive scope of scientific studies, from animals and plants, to the galaxies of outer space and the depths of the ocean, to cells and organisms, to the curiosities of chemistry and the marvels of our planet. Still more, it reveals the intricate order found beneath the surface of creation and chronicles many of the Church’s contributions to science throughout history.
In Cells and Systems: Living Machines, Dr. Heather Ayala explores the fascinating depths found in the smallest of God’s creations—the cell. The complex fabric and workings of the human body are presented vibrantly and clearly so that children can come to understand how they were created, from the division of their cells and the DNA instructions within them; to their muscles and bones; to their cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, and other systems; to their five senses; to understanding why eating healthy foods and getting plenty of exercise is good for them.
