Within the science department there are three SMARTBoards and all classes have their own digital projectors. With two new updated science labs equipped with computers, a teaching room with computers, and a student room with computers, we are able to link science on the internet to the students’ course of study. With representation of models in three dimensional profiles, animations, and YouTube science videos, learning becomes more visually interactive for the students.
With an emphasis on the area of health sciences and engineering as post secondary career choices, we offer programming designed to allow students to meet all their course requirements to be successful in their chosen careers. Advanced Placement courses and tutorial sessions, lunch time and after school help, science Olympics and competitions are offered to enhance our students’ success.
Forensic Science @ GHCI!
Forensic Science is NOT like TV! GHCI will introdue the reality of Forensic Science to students through research, inquiry, activity based and problem based learning to the fundamentals of forensic science. Forensic Science is an interdisciplinary science and therefore draws upon a variey of disciplines not limited to what students traditionally consider "science". Students will explore a variety of topics including but not limited to Foundations of Forensic Science, Crime Scene Analysis and Types of Evidence, Fingerprinting and Footwear Analysis, Trace Evidence Analysis, Serology and Blood Spatter, DNA Analysis, Chemical Analysis, Toxicology, Forensic Anthropology, Odontology, Pathology, Entomology, Digital and Cyber Analysis among other applications through grade 11 and grade 12 courses offered @ GHCI.
Discovery Program: A collaboration between GHCI and UofT's Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering.
Science students @ GHCI will embark on a unique learning opportunity in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum in partnership with UofT's IBBME. Traditionally students have a narrow scope of what "engineering" and "science" REALLY involve. This activity and design based program engages students to delve into the real-world problems associated with biomedical engineering. The program develops STEM related skills such as but not limited to problem solving, creative as well as critical thinking, analytical processing and written and oral communication. Further, the program exposes students to a high caliber university learning environment and to a vast realm of previously unknown career opportunities.
