Science 30

Science 30 program is guided by the vision that all students, regardless of gender or cultural background, are given the opportunity to develop scientific literacy. Diverse learning experiences within the science program provide students with opportunities to explore, analyze and appreciate the interrelationships among science, technology, society and the environment and to develop understandings that will affect their personal lives, their careers and their futures. Science 30 equips students with attitudes that they need to solve problems and make decisions and encourages students to become lifelong learners who maintain their sense of wonder about the world around them. The four units of study are; Living Systems respond to their Environment, Chemistry in the Environment, Electromagnetic Energy and Energy and the Environment.

Physics 30 aims to educate students about the nature of science and technology, and the interaction between physics and technology. Students must be aware of the tremendous impact of physics and associated technology on society, but at the same time, they must be aware of the roles and limitations of the physical sciences, science in general, and of technology in problem solving in a societal context. Momentum and Impulse, Forces and Fields, EMR and Atomic Physics are the main units of study.

Biology 30 is an academic course that will help students to better understand and apply fundamental concepts and skills relating to biology. The major science concepts developed in Biology 30 include equilibrium, systems, change and diversity. As a byproduct of the academic study of biology it is hoped that students will develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will help them make informed choices about issues that involve concepts covered in class.  Students explore these concepts through four units of study: Cell Division, Genetics and Molecular Biology, Population and Community Dynamics, Nervous and Endocrine Systems, and Reproduction and Development

Chemistry 30 course is the study of the role of chemical properties through Thermochemistry in determining what makes materials suitable for use in specific applications. Students will actively investigate the nature of Equilibrium in chemical reactions. In Electrochemistry, students explore oxidation-reduction reactions and the impact of electrochemistry on society and the environment. Other topics include Organic compounds, with focus on organic nomenclature and Alberta’s crude oil refining.

Chemistry AP curriculum is delivered concurrently alongside the Alberta curriculum. The Chemistry AP curriculum will go above a beyond the regular course curriculum and is meant to increase the rigor for highly motivated students.  Chemistry AP will also give students enhanced experience in a laboratory setting to develop skills equivalent to those in a first year university setting.  Areas of study outside the regular Alberta curriculum will include the study in Atomic Structure & Periodicity, Thermochemistry, Equilibrium, Kinetics, and Gases.

Congratulations to F.E. Osborne School. Students raised over $10,700 for their #TerryFoxSchoolRun (surpassing last year’s total of $2,995!) Way to go! #WeAreCBE @feo_eagles_cbe

Many #WeAreCBE schools will be honouring #OrangeShirtDay on Wednesday, Sept. 30 to recognize the resiliency and bravery of residential school survivors

RT @UsihChristopher: Important: Parents/guardians are required to assess students daily for symptoms of COVID-19 before the start of the school day using the daily screening questionnaire (checklist), available here: Anyone who is experiencing symptoms cannot enter a school.

Students registered for hub online will receive an email by end of day Wednesday with a teacher introduction, info about how and where to log in and more. Check for more details. #cbehub #yycbe

Today is the first public Board meeting of the 2020-21 school year. We invite you to stream the meeting online starting at noon #yycbe
