Students at St. George's learn scientific concepts and methods by using an experimental approach and participating in group projects that help reinforce course content. Our science program is designed to prepare students for careers in technology, pure and applied science, and health science.
Upon completion of an intensive ecology unit, students in Secondary I go on an amphibian discovery field trip and create food web murals to describe the local ecosystem.
Students in Secondary II investigate and build working machines that have had an impact on society and present them at Science Fair.
Secondary III students also participate in Science Fair by devising a unique solution to a scientific problem or question and carrying it out using the scientific method.
Secondary IV science-stream students take a unique Marine Biology course through which they participate in a water quality study where they perform a multitude of water quality tests from various locations in order to assess the level of contamination in the aquatic environment. They also have the opportunity to spend a week interacting with marine ecosystems on the island of Roatan in Honduras. In
Secondary V, Physics and Chemistry students have the opportunity to enrich their science fair experience by being mentored by specialists working in their scientific field of study.
