It’s Element-ary

The grade 11 chemistry class took on periodic trends through an assignment where they made everything from cake pop models to massive diagrams in order to creatively represent patterns that occur in the table. They have now moved on to their chemical bonding unit and are studying the nature of the molecules in further detail.

Experiments that Matter

The grade 11 chemistry class finished their study of chemical equations and moved on to their matter unit. They covered topics including the light spectrum and nuclear equations, and conducted several lab experiments. In upcoming lessons, they plan to further investigate the quantum regions of matter as well as periodic trends.

20th Journey to the Falls

This weekend the grade 10 science students trekked across Hilton Falls Provincial Park in a 23 km hike.  They spent the day collecting data from sample stations, enjoying the picturesque scenery as they prepared for their upcoming trip to Algonquin park.

Up Up and Away

The grade 10 ICS students created programs which depicted rockets blasting off into space. They learned how to import backgrounds, graphics, and audio files into their code to enhance their programs. In the next few weeks, they will begin learning about the advantages of using arrays to manage data sets.
