We are Sci-Tech North

Our modern way of life is based largely on the advances made by science and technology. We have developed as a society because of our natural curiosity - seeking answers to problems, examining how different areas of knowledge and facts relate to each other, and looking at not only what happens but also how and why something happens. SciTech North, for those living north of the 401, is based at Centennial Senior Public School. This program is offered by the Peel District School Board to students in grades 6, 7 and 8. In September 2013, Centennial will host its first two grade 6 classes as we begin this initiative. At SciTech, the emphasis is on inquiry, and on integrating science, technology and math with other subjects whenever possible, creating a unique learning environment. This is where students will gain a deeper understanding of the links among what they're learning and the world around them.
