Reasons for studying science

In the words of Aristotle  ….. “In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous”.

As we enter the twenty-first century, science fills an increasingly important role in the work world. Scientific discoveries support many aspects of modern society, from the development of more efficient computers to the discovery of more effective pharmaceuticals. The influence of science on our culture continues to grow, and consequently, students must develop appropriate science literacy and numeracy skills to compete effectively in the global economy. Students participating in science courses acquire the skills to interpret information from various sources, and to critically evaluate the results of their research. Science education supports the development of lifelong learning and a genuine sense of wonder about the living planet.

At Forest Heights, we love teaching science because we get to explore the wonders of the natural world with you. Our courses will provide you with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in this technological age while also encouraging you to question the societal implications of technology.

What students have to say about science

“I never knew I was good at science! It’s totally different from grade 7 and 8. I can’t wait for grade 10!”

“I like that we mix it up – labs, group work, graphing, videos and formal lessons- it makes science interesting. It’s different every day. I love that.”

“At FHCI, I gained skills and knowledge that made the transition to university education easy. I left FHCI knowing chemistry and physics so well; my first year at university was (almost) a  breeze!”

“I like the way science IS everything in the world around us. Everything makes sense in science :-)”
