Of the sciences commonly taught in high schools over the last 
half-century I suspect biology teaching has changed the most. Molecular 
biology, especially since the human genome has been mapped, permeates 
the curriculum, whereas that was barely discussable fifty years ago.  
Ecology and environmental studies were unheard of back then; today they 
are studied in elementary schools. Computer technology allows virtual 
dissections and subject matter detail presentations unimaginable while 
Johnson and Nixon were bombing Vietnam.  Newer ethical considerations 
have arisen since medical advances have lengthened lives and prolonged 
care.  Biology curricula have the shortest half-lives and most need 
refreshing to be up-to-date.   People who graduated high school before 
1990 (before genome mapping) have a substantially new subject to learn.

The militarily-minded ruggedized-retards among us are more likely to 
suggest that H. sapiens will be crossed with miniaturized Tyrannosaurus 
rex to create the next generation of battle-ready reptilian soldiers.  
Go see the movie Jurassic World if you're not aware of this reference.
