The Science Program is designed to help broaden the students’ scientific knowledge by means of hands-on activities and projects that will enable them to integrate what they have learned with environmental concerns. It also develops a broader understanding of the scientific method in both lab and problem-solving skills.

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Cycle One-Year One and Two
Cycle One Science and Technology provides students the opportunity to construct a hypothesis, test its prediction by experimentation, identify the different variables, and familiarize themselves with the scientific method. The two-year course develops the student’s ability to seek answers to problems, communicate in the language of science and technology and apply their knowledge of science and technology. The units of study are: the living world, earth and space, the material world and the technological world.

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Cycle Two-Year One
The Science and Technology program introduces students to basic anatomy and physiology. Concepts in the material world, such as the properties of matter and waves are explored, as well as the graphical language and mechanical engineering skills in the technological world. Students also learn about the digestive, respiratory, circulatory, excretory, nervous, skeletal, muscular and reproductive systems, with an emphasis on the acquisition of attitudes aimed at understanding and maintaining good health.

APPLIED SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Cycle Two-Year Two
This course is a requirement for graduation from high school, and it is a pre-requisite to study Sciences in C.E.G.E.P. It builds upon the scientific concepts studied in earlier Science and Technology courses. Students are also required to apply some of the principles studied in earlier Mathematics programs. This four-credit course examines graphical language, electricity, electronics, magnetism, mechanics, energy resources and environmental topics. The course is subject to a Ministry examination in June. There is an honours section of this course, which explores many of these concepts in greater detail.

SCIENCE AND THE ENVIRONMENT Cycle Two-Year Two
During the same year as the Applied Science and Technology Cycle Two-Year Two course (but not concurrently), this two-credit course is a pre-requisite for taking the Science Option courses in Cycle Two-Year Three at Loyola. This course examines the basic concepts of chemistry, including atomic models, the periodic table, molecules, compounds and chemical equations. There is an honours section of this course, which explores many of these concepts in greater detail.

CHEMISTRY Cycle Two-Year Three
Pre-Requisite: 75% in Applied Science and Technology (Cycle Two-Year Two); 75% in Science and the Environment (Cycle Two-Year Two); 75% in NS Math.
Chemistry is an optional four-credit course intended for students who plan to pursue studies in science at the C.E.G.E.P. level. Chemistry deals with the study of energy and matter and is a continuation of the Science and the Environment course. Students are further exposed to skills associated with the scientific method, concern for the environment, knowledge of natural phenomena and technology related to chemistry. They are required to apply some of the principles and concepts studied in earlier Science and Mathematics programs. There is an honours section of this course, which explores many of these concepts in greater detail.

PHYSICS Cycle Two-Year Three
Pre-Requisite: 75% in Applied Science and Technology (Cycle Two-Year Two); 75% in Science and the Environment (Cycle Two-Year Two); 75% in NS Math.
Physics is an optional four-credit course intended for students who plan to pursue studies in science at the C.E.G.E.P. level. The physics course content focuses on classical mechanics, the nature of light and optical devices. A good grounding in the fundamentals of Mathematics is essential for success. There is an honours section of this course, which explores many of these concepts in greater detail.
