Science for Citizens 11
Students will explore the many ways science impacts our daily lives and learn how scientific knowledge can be used to develop procedures, techniques, and technologies that enable humans to respond and adapt to changes locally and globally. This hands-on class will allow students to design scientific projects and methodologies through individual or collaborative approaches. The class will consider social, ethical, and environmental implications of the findings from their own and the investigations of others. This course will enable students to gain credits towards Science 11.
Your Educator – Martin Derige
Martin hails from the icy, sunshiny land of Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he obtained a degree in Biosystems Engineering at the University of Manitoba. He has worked with students of all ages, from playing dodge ball in school gyms to peer tutoring sleep-deprived engineers. He teaches math, science, and chemistry, and lives for that ‘Aha! Eureka!’ moment when the kids just get it. Martin has a healthy sense of curiosity and compassion about the world and is always seeking to connect with the cool people who are part of it, like his family and friends – and the staff and students at Brain Boost! He exercises his brain with music, gaming, visual art, design, and puzzles of all types, and exercises his body through adventures like climbing, running in the woods, and day-long hikes in the mountains. He can often be found eating spaghetti.
