Science

What makes GHCI Science unique? Answer: Discovery & Forensics!

Discovery: A collaboration between GHCI and the University of Toronto

 Science students @ GHCI will embark on a unique learning opportunity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum in partnership with UofT. Traditionally students have a narrow scope of what “engineering” and “science” REALLY involve. This activity and design based program engages student to delve into real-world problems associated with STEM. The program develops STEM related skills such as but not limited to problem solving, creative as well as critical thinking, analytical processing and written and oral communication. Further, the program exposes students to a high caliber university learning environment and to a vast realm of previously unknown career opportunities.

Despite the Pandemic DISCOVERY is still going strong...virtually!

Forensic Science @ GHCI!

Forensic Science is NOT like TV! GHCI will introduce the reality of Forensic Science to students through research, inquiry, activity-based and problem based learning to the fundamentals of forensic science. Forensic Science is an interdisciplinary science and therefore draws upon a variety of disciplines not limited to what students traditionally consider “science”. Students will explore a variety of topics including but not limited to Foundations of Forensic Science, Crime Scene Analysis and Types of Evidence, Fingerprinting and Footwear Analysis, Trace Evidence Analysis, Serology and Blood Spatter, DNA Analysis, Chemical Analysis, Toxicology, Forensic Anthropology, Odontology, Pathology, Entomology, Digital and Cyber Analysis among other applications through the grade 11 and grade 12 courses offered @ GHCI.
