The primary goal of science is to understand the natural and human-designed worlds. Science refers to certain processes used by humans for obtaining knowledge about nature, and to an organized body of knowledge about nature obtained by these processes. Science is a dynamic and creative activity with a long and interesting history. Many societies have contributed to the development of scientific knowledge and understanding. . . . Scientists continuously assess and judge the soundness of scientific knowledge claims by testing laws and theories, and modifying them in light of compelling new evidence or a re-conceptualization of existing evidence.  SCCAO and STAO/APSO, “Position Paper: The Nature of Science” (2006), pp. 1–2
Our department strives to meet the needs of the 21st century learner by directly instructing the skills required for collaborative inquiry and problem solving.  Our department focus includes a shift from an "individual's impact" in grade 9 to a "world perspective" in grade 12 through the lens of green issues and technologies.
