|| Honors Biology is a research and writing-intensive version of our regular Biology course. (See the Biology description for detailed information.) This course meets state standards and is based on the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) standards. College Prep BIOLOGY LAB KIT: to fulfill lab requirements, students use a lab kit and manual designed specifically for use with both biology courses. Lab kits may be obtained by ordering the Learning Springs Lab kit directly from the manufacturer, At Home Science, at (866) 206-0773.
