Grade 10 – Science

Digital Fabrication 2

Available to: qualified 10 students, see placement requirements on the Science Department page or the Computer Science & Engineering page Schedule: one semester Special Notes: This course does not count towards the diploma requirement for the Science department. Students taking this course must concurrently be enrolled in a year of traditional science or have successfully completed three years of traditional science. Digital Fabrication 2 builds upon the skills learned in Digital Fabrication.  Students will learn how to use the Design Process to look at a variety of factors to solve problems.  Advanced CAD modeling will also be covered.  Students will be introduced to automated modeling and optimized design, allowing them to create and modify computer-generated parts.  Analysis of those parts through structural and fluid simulation will be introduced by using FEA (finite element analysis) to refine parts to meet specific requirements.  Top-up and bottom-down assembly techniques will be covered, [...]

Digital Fabrication 1

Available to: all grade 9 and 10 students Schedule: one semester Special Notes: This course does not count towards the diploma requirement for the Science department. Students taking this course must concurrently be enrolled in a year of traditional science or have successfully completed three years of traditional science. Digital Fabrication 1 introduces students to many of the skills needed to take an idea and turn it into a hands-on project.  Students will be introduced to CAD (computer-aided design) modeling, then will learn how to turn those models into actual parts using 3D printers, laser cutters and CNC (computer numerical control) machines.  Students will also be introduced to hands-on skills, learning how to work with metals, woods, and composites.  The fundamentals of designing circuits with a wide variety of electronic components and sensors will be taught.  Students will then learn how to create code to manipulate and control those [...]

Science 2 / Science 2 Honors

Type: honors available Available to: grade 10 students, required for those students, for honors see placement requirements on the Science Department page The natural world depends on the flow of energy and the transformation of matter. Building on the skills of inquiry and scientific method emphasized in the grade 9 Principles of Scientific Inquiry course, students explore thematic topics in astronomy, atmospheric science, chemistry, physics, biology, and ocean environmentalism. There is something for everyone! Topics explored in the physical sciences include the Big Bang, solar system properties, orbital mechanics and gravity, projectile motion, states of matter, chemical equations and reactions, and acid-base chemistry. Topics in biology include DNA and heredity, select organ systems, and we conclude the year with a deep look at environmental challenges faced by our oceans.  The honors sections follow the same sequence, but require deeper analysis of chemistry and physics, including computational problems in areas [...]
