This week, the grade 10 science class demonstrated the Conservation of Mass law through an enriching experiment. In partners, students designed procedures to ensure that the two reactants, cobalt (II) chloride and ammonium hydroxide, would be equal in mass after being combined. A formal lab report was written afterwards.
The grade 11 physics class conducted a lab on constant acceleration for their kinematics unit. Groups of four utilized ticker timers to record the time it took for a cart to run down a tilted runway. Students applied this data to calculate velocity and acceleration, in addition to analyzing the results and relationships between variables.
This week, the grade 10 science students completed their first unit. Ms. Hermanovsky’s class gained a better understanding of chemistry through hands-on lab experiments. Mr. van Bemmel’s class enjoyed lectures about the history of science, including how scientists discovered the speed and determined the nature of light.
