Special Physics Lecture


The Grade 11’s were lucky enough to have Professors Krieger, Kushner, and Morris from the University of Toronto physics department come in and talk about their research and projects. Students listened eagerly as topics from particle physics to patterns in nature were discussed and demonstrated.

Grade 12 Biology


This week, the Grade 12 Biology classes started the first of their “Hot Topics” projects. Students are working together in groups to analyse scientific articles related to topics studied in the curriculum. Presentations this week included an in-depth analysis of the use of antibiotics and a study on stem cell research.

Colourful Chemistry!

This week in the Grade 10 science class, students performed a lab in which they learned about the Law of Conservation of Mass. The budding chemists experimented with different chemicals to create brightly coloured liquids and precipitates, and dropped alka seltzer in water to inflate balloons.

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

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.
