Chemistry is constantly at work all around us! Chemistry 11 provides a strong foundation for understanding the multitude of physical and chemical reactions in your everyday life. Furthermore, this course acts as a stepping stone to understanding Chemistry 12 and future STEM courses. This isn’t your typical Chemistry class, it isn’t all textbooks and worksheets, as Martin will guide you through exciting hands-on experiments and awe-inspiring demonstrations. You’ll get a chance to create and test your own universal indicator, dabble with the electrolysis of water, and if you’re lucky, maybe even blow something up.
Your Teacher – Martin Derige
Martin hails from the icy, sunshiny land of Winnipeg, Manitoba, where he obtained a degree in Biosystems Engineering at the University of Manitoba. He has worked with students of all ages, from playing dodge ball in school gyms to peer tutoring sleep-deprived engineers. He teaches math, science, and chemistry, and lives for that “Aha! Eureka!” moment when the kids just get it. Martin has a healthy sense of curiosity and compassion about the world and is always seeking to connect with the cool people who are part of it, like his family and friends – and the staff and students at Brain Boost! He exercises his brain with music, gaming, visual art, design, and puzzles of all types, and exercises his body through adventures like climbing, running in the woods, and day-long hikes in the mountains. He can often be found eating spaghetti.
