Science 10 explores three main areas: Life Science, Physical Science, and Earth and Space Science. Students will watch continents shuffle and jostle past each other, volcanoes erupt, oceans widen, and mountains emerge. They will witness the colourful (and sometimes explosive!) magic of chemical reactions. As they follow the movement of energy through the atmosphere, students will predict the weather and discuss the implications of climate change. Their exploration of physics will enable them to describe how a car can go “from 0 km/h to 90 km/h in 6 seconds.” Students will examine the interactions of organisms and their environments and take a virtual tour through the Great Bear Rainforest. Science 10 is designed for self-paced independent learners as well as students in regular classrooms.
