Science and Technology

Honoré Mercier students are passionate about science!

From the start of their elementary school experience, our kindergarten and cycle 1 students are exposed to scientific inquiry through hands on learning.

Cycle 2 and 3 students have the opportunity to explore science and technology in French. It is based on 3 scientific concepts: Living Things, Earth and Space and the Material World.

Science classes equip students with the knowledge they need, in order to inquire about the world that surrounds them. Technology is incorporated throughout our curriculum.

Students continuously attain grand achievements at the Quebec Regional Science Fair.  They consistently return with Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal standing for their stellar scientific projects!  We have an exceptional program which encourage our children to excel with facility.
