The science programs at École Camrose Composite High School present logical, consistent, and internationally accepted methods of investigating, describing, and explaining the world around us. The biology, chemistry, physics, and science programs not only deal with the natural world (science) but also with man-made products and processes (technology). Student evaluation will focus not only on mastery of the scientific concepts, but also on the development of acceptable laboratory skills and the understanding of the nature of science and science-technology-society interactions. The goal of these science programs is to provide the student with sufficient background to make meaningful decisions in a society which is progressively more dependent on science and technology.
All École Camrose Composite High School science courses are centered around four general learner expectations:
Attitudes: an enthusiasm for, and a continuing interest in science
Knowledge: an understanding of the fundamental concepts of science
Skills: scientific inquiry and appropriate use of technology
Science, technology and society (STS) connections: how scientific knowledge develops, solving problems and making choices.
