Welcome to Science


The Heart Lake Science Department is an enthusiastic group of teachers who enjoy working collaboratively in an environment of mutual respect, support and appreciation.


As science educators, we strive to help our students achieve success through creative instruction, integration of technology in the classroom, extensive support initiatives that foster student success and proactive communication with parents. Graduates of the Heart Lake Science Program are prepared for university, college or the world of work. They take with them skills in scientific literacy, quantitative analysis, and a better understanding of the world around them.
