Curriculum

Overall Curriculum Expectations

Science is a way of understanding that seeks to describe and explain the natural and physical world. An important aspect is making connections between skills and concepts, and the practical applications of science and technology. Learning about life systems, matter and energy, structures and mechanisms, and Earth and space systems is crucial. As students engage in STEM education, they develop transferable skills that are needed to meet the demands of today’s global economy and society, and to become scientifically and technologically literate citizens.

The science and technology curriculum at Atlas Learning Zone is divided into five strands:

  • STEM Skills and Connections
  • Life Systems: Cells
  • Matter and Energy: Fluids
  • Structures and Mechanisms: Systems in Action
