Science is simply the word we use to describe a method of organizing our curiosity.” – T. Minchin
Welcome to the Earth & Life Sciences Department at North Park SS. As a department, we aim to build a strong foundation of Science and Geography concepts. Whether our students are studying the structure of the Earth, or the interactions between atoms, molecules, and organisms, they are always investigating, hypothesizing, experimenting, researching, and using 21st century skills to find solutions and pose new questions. In doing so, the staff in the Earth & Life Sciences department strive to encourage our students to have their "eureka" moments in strengthening their knowledge for their future endeavours.
“Creativity is contagious, pass it on.” – A. Einstein
