In Science, students explore and investigate big questions related to the world around them. When students learn through the lens of science, they move beyond factual recall and develop the science-related attitudes, skills and knowledge needed to solve problems and make decisions. Students become lifelong learners through maintaining their sense of wonder about the world around them.

They explore, investigate and find out how things work in order to answer questions and satisfy their curiosities. Learning about science provides a framework for students to deepen their understanding and interpret the world around them. At each grade level, students explore topics related to: change; energy; matter; systems; interactions/relationships; forces; and diversity.

March/April 2018

The Science department has chosen 4 Grade 6 projects and 15 projects from Grades 7 to 9 to represent our school in the Calgary Youth Science Fair in April. These students have been working hard in science fair club to refine their projects and get them ready for competition.

The Grade 6’s had a great experience at The Hangar Museum. They were able to build 3 different flying devices, tour the hangar and board 3 different aircraft! With the fieldtrip they have wrapped up their flight unit and are now shooting for the stars in the Sky Science Unit. They will be studying stars, moons, planets, and space technology.  They will be building time devices as well. You can visit http://www.2learn.ca/kids/listSciG6.aspx?Type=58 for resources to support the unit.

Students in Grade 7 have finished their egg drop experiments for the Structures and Forces Unit. After an initial and somewhat messy test, students refined their designs in hopes of having more “survivors” for their second drops. Great job!

Students in our 8C Grade 8 class have been chosen to participate in Beaker Head over March and April. Beaker Head is in partnership with studio bell and national music centre. They will be sending two hip-hop ambassadors from Global Fest to Annie Gale to work with students in 8C in creating rap music that is connected to science.

A number of our Grade 9’s are going to the Science Olympics in May. A group of Grade 9’s will compete against other city Grade 9 students in the Study of our Universe.  They will complete a challenge prior to the event in addition to challenge and construction challenges on site at C.O.P! This will be a great introduction to our final unit – Space Exploration.

The teachers in the Science department would like to remind both students and parents to be checking D2L and Home Logic on a regular basis to keep up with what is going on in class and to keep track of project, assignment and quiz marks.  Thank you for your ongoing support of the Science department
