Welcome to Science at Burnaby North!  This is Ms. Shim’s Burnaby North blog.  Here you will find relevant information, links, and homework tables for your classes. Ms. Shim teaches Science 8, Chemistry 11 H (pre-AP), and Chemistry 12 this year.

What is Science?

Is science just another school subject, like math and English, or is it  information about the parts of a body and the temperatures at which water freezes?  Is it something you do in a lab, like mixing together different chemicals or is it a way of looking at the world and seeing it for what it is?

Science is actually all these things . . . plus a little art and imagination.

What is Chemistry?

Chemistry is the branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is compose, the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine, and change, and the use of these processes to form new substances.

I hope you enjoy this journey into different fields of science this year!
