Hands-On Learning

Physics 11

Ms. Uzan shows Adina and Milena, Grade 11, how to use the motion sensors.

This week the Physics 11 class learned about Newton’s law of universal gravitation, and got the opportunity to understand it in a tangible and practical way, using motion sensors and handheld computer interfaces. The students graphed the motion of bouncy balls in free fall in order to measure the rate of acceleration caused by gravity on earth. 

Fisher, Ben, and Maytar, Grade 11, set up their experiment.

Biology 12

Ruth and Talya, Grade 12, prepare to test their DNA. 

The Biology 12 class spent the day at the Michael Smith Laboratories at UBC, which specialize in biotechnology. The students spent the day learning about evolution and genetics. They had the opportunity to replicate their own DNA and test for a non-coding sequence of their genome. 

Davina and Shayna, Grade 12, fill their test tubes.

Fun in the Snow

On Wednesday, the Grade 10 Girls and Grade 10 Boys PE classes went snowshoeing on Cypress Mountain and had a fantastic time. The weather was gorgeous, and many students exclaimed how much fun they had and how beautiful the scenery was! Special thanks to Ms. Bauck, Mr. Amram, Mr. Sirucek, and Mr. Dichter, who accompanied the students on their snowshoeing trek.
