course descriptions

Exploratory and Introduction to Bioscience and Environmental Technology (BT110)
All Grade 9 students participate in the Exploratory Program. As students enter the field of Bioscience Environmental Technology they will be introduced to college opportunities and career pathways in forestry, beach and marine analysis and identification of plants. Students are instructed in laboratory and field competencies, which can be built upon in the later years of the technology and in their science classes. Field trips to local shoreline communities are an important component of the Exploratory Program.

Measurement and Analysis (BT210)
In Grade 10, students master laboratory and field competencies through project-based learning. In each project, students learn to analyze data collected in the lab or field using scientific methodology. Course content includes topics such as water treatment/filtration, forestry, wetland conservation, microbiology, classification of living organisms and stream analysis. Emphasis is placed on protocol procedures and teamwork to emphasize college preparedness and to mirror workplace requirements. Students are instructed in science-related safety.

Managing the Environment (BT310)
In Grade 11, students will be investigating real-world environmental problems and work to solve these problems using hands-on, team-based applications. In addition to production projects, students will experience habitat management, aquaculture, biotechnology data-driven mapping, meteorology, global warming and evolutionary biology. Emphasis is placed on presentation, report writing and teamwork. Students are instructed in science (lab)-related and shop safety. Work-based Learning (WBL) is available to eligible students.

Individual Topics in Bioscience (BT410)
In Grade 12, students are given an opportunity to reflect on previous experiences (grades 9 - 11) and develop a senior project. The topic, chosen by each student, is presented to a panel and composes a portion of their final grade. All projects include the student’s accumulative skills of design, observation, data collection and analysis reporting. Written and oral data reports as well as the meeting of deadlines are part of the senior year course requirements. Seniors participate in a mentoring program for the 9th grade students where they assist in lab procedures and data collection. Various certifications are earned during Grade 12 including OSHA and HAZMAT. Seniors are expected to work independently and participate in Work-based Learning if they are eligible. A performance-based test is administered to all seniors prior to graduation.

Students successfully completing this course of study will be able to pursue a two-year or a four-year degree at colleges or universities in the area of environmental technology or other related sciences. Students can obtain immediate employment in environmental-related industries such as aquaculture or habitat management, maintenance and water treatment.
