Updates from Upper School Science:

September 22, 2016 – We are finishing Week 7 and everyone is in full swing in each of the science courses. In grade 11 chemistry we did a three day lab purifying dirty, oily water and have also become more familiar with the fundamentals of atoms.  In HS Physics we have done many small labs where the students discover physics principles as they run toy cars, walk in front of motion detectors or bounce rubber balls from great heights. In grade 12 Environmental Science, we continue to utilize the web and do research on many topics, such as a country’s vital statistics of average family income rate and natural resource consumption which ultimately impact the environment.
