ESA Science – Lunchtime Tutorials – Today: “Grade 9 Electricity – Part 2”

ESA Science is pleased to continue their “Lunchtime Tutorials” for Grades 9 and 10.

Today (Thursday) Mr. Schumacher will review and provide enrichment for Grade 9: “Current Electricity – Concepts and Calculations, Part 2”. Students can attend Part 2 without having attended Part 1.

Next Thursday’s Grade 10 Tutorial will be a “light” review, with opportunities for reflection (and possibly, dispersion).

Tutorials take place in Room S14 and begin about 15 minutes into lunch. The atmosphere is very welcoming and students may eat their lunches. Senior students will be gladly “standing by” to help out.

ESA’s STEM Council Visitor – Ms. Julia Boughner

ESA’s STEM Council (Science Technology Engineering and Math) is hosting a visit from Ms. Julia Boughner today (Wednesday) at lunch (12:10 pm to 12:50 pm, due to late start) in Room S15. Ms. Boughner, an ESA alumna (1994, Visual Arts), currently runs her own science research lab at the University of Saskatchewan. She had planned to become an animator, but became an evolutionary developmental anthropologist instead.

All are welcome. Students may eat their lunches during this informal discussion.

STEM is always looking for family or community volunteers who would be willing to discuss their STEM experiences with interested students at lunch. Please contact STEM student leader, Julia Jairath at [email protected]
