COURSE DESCRIPTION

More than 70 per cent of the earth’s surface is covered with water, and most of this water is found in the oceans. In learning about the earth’s water systems, students will develop an understanding of the important role that water systems play in global ecosystems. They will evaluate the role media play in portraying controversial water issues and research recent technological innovations related to Earth’s water systems. Students will gain a basic understanding of Earth’s water systems and come to a better understanding of their own role in caring for this precious resource.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, children will be able to:

  • Assess the impact of human activities and technologies on the sustainability of water resources;
  • Investigate factors that affect local water quality
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the characteristics of the earth’s water systems and the influence of water systems on a specific region.
English EN Français FR
Technology comprises an entire system of people and organizations, knowledge, processes, and devices that go into creating and operating technological artifacts, as well as the artifacts themselves. Modern technology is a product of science and engineering, and technological tools are used in both fields
Science is the study of the natural world, including the laws of nature associated with physics, chemistry, and biology and the treatment or application of facts, principles, concepts, and conventions. Science is a body of knowledge that has been accumulated over time.
Engineering is both a body of knowledge—about the design and creation of human-made products—and a process for solving problems. Engineering utilizes concepts from science and mathematics as well as technological tools.

Magic Milk Experiment

When dish soap is dropped into milk, there is a swirl of activity of soap molecules finding and bonding with fat molecules in the milk. With millions of molecules swirling around looking for mates, the colors in the milk get all mixed up!

Dry Ice Experiment

Dry Ice is a fun and cold experiment. There’s many things you can create, so what can you make with dry ice?
Dry ice is a cool and a fun outdoor experiment. Have you ever worked with it? The big caution is that you don’t want to touch it less it burns your skin. Got that? So it has to be handled with tongs and/or insulated gloves.
