The Minor in General Science for Elementary Education will provide students with classroom and practical laboratory instruction that will help them feel more comfortable teaching science in the elementary classroom. NTSC 3000 is a required course where each week students will perform labs based on the Alberta Learning elementary science curriculum, and they will have practice designing and testing their own lab experiences. Within the minor, students will take courses from a variety of scientific disciplines, reflecting the interdisciplinary design of the elementary science curriculum.
Students planning to complete a minor in General Science should check with an Advisor early in their studies so that they can ensure that they meet all requirements before graduation. Some of the courses in the minor have prerequisites, so students should consider these prerequisites when selecting their courses.
Students MUST be enrolled in the Bachelor of Education - Elementary degree program and complete six required courses.
