THE GOALS OF THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM.....Ontario curriculum

A scientifically and technologically literate person is one who can read and understand common media reports about science and technology, critically evaluate the information presented, and confidently engage in discussions and decision-making activities that involve science and technology. Science Co-ordinators’ and Consultants’ Association of Ontario (SCCAO) and Science Teachers’ Association of Ontario (STAO/APSO), “Position Paper: The Nature of Science” (2006), p. 1

Description:

In this program, participants will have opportunities to interact with living things and to work with a variety of tools, materials, and equipment. Different topics related to physical sciences, matter, forces, structures, live systems, and energy will be taught. They will explore 3D models and develop sciences projects and experiments with different materials, in an entertained and engaged way. Combined with the "Complete Science Smart" Canadian curriculum, this program will help master the basic concepts of science and technology and develop the skills needed for scientific inquiry.

Here the key learning values for them:

1. Introduce the theory behind working with simple machines using gears, levers, pulleys, and transmission of motion.
