Details in Biology

This week, grade eleven students rediscover cell theory as they delve into the details of biology. Before heading into more complex topics, students focus on the finer details by taking a look at cellular structure and behaviour on a molecular level.

Grade 11 Physics Lab 0

This week, the grade elevens begin data collection for Lab 0 of Mr. van Bemmel’s Physics course. By measuring wooden block and metal cylinders with different tools, students learn about working with uncertainty, reading error, and standard deviation.

Probability Experiments

In the Grade 12 Data Management class, students finished up their unit on combinations and have now moved on to probability. Through the use of cards, coins, and dice, they have been modelling different situations and calculating the experimental and theoretical probabilities. This useful skill has many real life applications, and will come in handy for any future experiments.

Bumper-bot Racing

This week, the technological design class culminated their Electronics unit with a Bumper-Bot race! Students meticulously soldered dozens of electronic components, and attaching motors and wheels to their own creatively inspired base. The bots ranged from chickens to tanks, and did not fail to entertain.
