Chemistry Labs

The grade 10 science students learned about properties of different elements and studied chemical reactions through various in-class experiments. Some topics that were explored include combustion, neutralization, acids and bases, and balancing chemical equations.

Modern Storytelling

This week, the grade 9 English class began working on a project that aims to deliver modern depictions of various Greek myths. Students will be presenting a skit using props that they’ve made or sourced, and drawing a comic using techniques previously taught in class.

Powering Through Biology

Grade 12 biology students learned about mitochondrial replacement therapy during their weekly Hot Topics Presentation, in which groups of students summarize and explain a recent scientific article. After learning about mitochondrial replacement therapy’s procedure and risks, the class participated in activities where they simulated the replacement process.

Concentrating Reactions

The grade 12 chemistry class conducted an experiment to find the rate law of the reaction between sodium thiosulfate and hydrochloric acid. Students determined the reaction rates by observing how quickly the mixture became cloudy. A second experiment was completed to determine the effect of temperature on the reaction rate as well.
