Computational Thinking 2: Coding and Robotics for Solutions (CT2: semester)
In this advanced level of Computational Thinking, students will take the skills learned in CT1 and GS1 to advance their understanding of coding and robotics, while finding ways to apply that knowledge to problems here at school, in the community, and around the world. Students in this course will complete a project for either the SCPS Science and Engineering Fair or the Markham Innovation Showcase. Pre-requisite: CT1 and GS1. This course is a pre-requisite for other classes in the Biomechatronics Program of Exploration.
Health Anatomy and Physiology (HAP1: semester)
This course is designed to provide an opportunity to investigate the human body, its structure, function and how it reacts to external stimuli throughout everyday life and physical training. Students will learn the structure and function of the human body systems (Muscular, Skeletal, Nervous, Digestive and Respiration) and will engage in investigations to understand and explain the behavior of the human body in a variety of scenarios that incorporate scientific reasoning, analysis and real world applications. This class will serve as an excellent base of knowledge for students with interests in the following fields: Biomechatronics, Pre Med, Health Careers, Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Personal Training or nutrition. This course is a pre-requisite for other classes in the Biomechatronics Program of Exploration.
STEM Game Changers (SGC year)
This course is intended to cultivate interest in STEM disciplines and careers. Students in SGC will learn about the different areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as well as their related careers. This course will prepare them for a number of STEM competitions including Science Fair, SECME, Robotics, Odyssey of the Mind and others. This is a limited enrollment class that requires application. Although part of the BMT program, it is not a pre-requisite course. Contact guidance for an application.
Advanced Robotics (AR: year)
The purpose of this course is to provide students the opportunity to advance their mastery in the field of robotics while preparing for Regional, State and National FIRST Robotics competitions. Students in this course are required to complete a project for either the SCPS Science and Engineering Fair or the Markham Innovation Showcase. Pre-requisite: CT1 This is a limited enrollment course that requires application.
