This course enables students to enhance their understanding of concepts in biology, chemistry, earth and space science, and physics, and of the interrelationships between science, technology, society, and the environment. Students are also given opportunities to further develop their scientific investigation skills. Students will plan and conduct investigations and develop their understanding of scientific theories related to the connections between cells and systems in animals and plants; chemical reactions, with a particular focus on acid–base reactions; forces that affect climate and climate change; and the interaction of light and matter. Prerequisite: Science, Grade 9, Academic or Applied
Our summer academy offers blended learning credit courses, with 2 weeks spent on our campus, and 2 weeks spent online to complete the credit.
While on campus, students engage in authentic learning experiences that advance them toward earning an Ontario Secondary School credit during mornings, and choose from a wide array of traditional camp activities in the afternoon. The program is rounded out by afternoon and evening programming at our waterfront and on our beautiful rural campus.
