Science

The goal of science education at Scarlett Heights is more than just providing students with a knowledge of facts. We know that mastery of the subject can no longer be evaluated solely in terms of students’ ability to recall specialized terminology, memorize isolated facts, or repeat a theory. Rather, students must be given opportunities to learn through investigation. In doing so, they can practise and become proficient in various scientific investigation skills. These skills not only develop critical thinking and allow students to extend their understanding of science; they are also useful in students’ everyday lives and will help them in pursuing their postsecondary goals, whether in science or some other area of endeavour.
  • We offer courses in the areas of chemistry, biology and physics
  • We have science labs dedicated to general science, biology and chemistry courses
  • Hands-on laboratory activities supplement curriculum expectations
  • Computer technology is used to enhance learning 
  • In the spring, field trips are planned to the Ontario Science Centre for DNA Fingerprinting for our grade 12 biology and senior science courses

Malaise Trap

Grade 9 Science students at Scarlett Heights participated in the Malaise trap program. A malaise trap is a large tent-like structure and it is used when one is trying to trap flying insects such as Hymenoptera and Diptera. The school Malaise Trap program has teamed up with schools and educators all across Canada, in order to educate students about insect diversity. The goal of this program is for students to explore, ask questions and understand the world of insects around them.

Students had the opportunity to set up a tent for the insects in the Scarlett Heights courtyard. Mr. D’Souza walked his class through instructions and methods for setting up the tent safely and efficiently. Students enjoyed this creative learning experience and it was a great success for all.
