CIC News for High School Teachers

Canadian high school science teachers can subscribe to our news content for free! The articles complement high school science curricula, providing the latest in research and innovation in the chemical sciences and chemical engineering sectors.

The content is highly readable and inspiring to those students considering a career in the sciences.

Some examples of how we help you engage your students:

  • As the planet experiences more extreme weather events linked to human activity, there is a growing emphasis on sustainability practices, which embrace switching from petroleum-based products like coal and oil and gas to sustainable ones like solar, wind and bio-fuel power. We present stories about green innovation, and how chemical scientists and engineers are creating solutions to global energy problems. Students learn that they have the power to create change for the better.
  • Our “question and answer” format stories showcase Canada’s top chemical researchers, and help students develop the strategies for scientific enquiry. Students also learn that chemistry is about real life—it’s not just beakers in a lab—and embracing science is the means to understanding the world.
  • We show students how seemingly abstract concepts are applicable to everyday life. How do you do chemistry experiments on a planet like Mars? How do you make medicines from ocean sponges? How do you make electricity from waste wood? These are the fascinating questions that will inspire an interest in science.

Help your students learn more about the mysterious and beautiful world around them!
