Science & Math

Students at GCCS are provided with opportunities to assess and extend their learning in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

Gauss Math Contest

Each year students from GCCS take part in the Gauss Math Contest which is designed by the University of Waterloo’s Centre for Education in Mathematics and Computing. Our students are entered into a competition pool of 62 Christian Schools, many from the Ontario Alliance of Christian Schools. Results for this pool of competition are tabulated by Toronto District Christian High School. Woodland Christian High School generously sponsors our entry fees.

Science Fair

Every two years, students in grades 5-8 are required to participate in a Science Fair that is judged and evaluated by community volunteers. Students choose their own topic or area of exploration with guidance from their science teacher. As a part of their project report students must reflect on the Christian perspective of their experiment and/or research. The gym fills up with displays by the students and the entire school community of parents and students are welcome to walk through the gym and talk to the students about their project.

Robotics Club

GCCS desires not only to introduce programming, but to re-introduce logical problem solving. In 2015-16 the first Lego Robotics club was launched at our school. Boys and girls from grades 4-8 were taught to program their robots to complete different tasks. At first the students were surprised by the lack of traditional Lego, but later were surprised by their new abilities to command a new type of lego. The culminating project was first a sumo wrestling competition (in the first two semesters of the club) followed in third term by a robot Olympics where teams had to work together to enter events.
