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.
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.
The grade nines have moved on to explore the science within the human body! Today they stepped into the life of a healthcare professional as they used stethoscopes and sphygmomanometers to probe and measure each other’s heart rate, and blood pressure. Such an experience allows students to better understand the complexity of the circulatory system.
