This is a British Columbia created resource.Intermediate General and Applied Science (CC BY-SA 4.0) Curated and Designed by Christine Miller (Thompson Rivers University)

This course package is designed as an introduction to general and applied science. It satisfies the learning outcomes for British Columbia Adult Basic Education Intermediate General and Applied Science (Science 10 in B.C.)  and found in the most recent edition of the B.C. ABE Articulation Handbook. Students are introduced to important basic science concepts relevant to the general or allied health sciences. The principles of biology, physics, and chemistry are studied in a modularized format with an emphasis on the connection between disciplines. Throughout the three modules (chemistry, biology, physics), students explore the scientific method, take part in peer discussions, develop problem-solving skills in classroom and laboratory settings, and learn required skills and knowledge for Grade 10 Science that will prepare them to further explore their areas of interest.


Edinburgh DataShort: College of Science & Engineering (Various CC licences) by University of Edinburgh

A digital repository of research data produced at the University of Edinburgh by the College of Science and Engineering.


This is a British Columbia created resource.The Mission, the Message, and the Medium: Science and Risk Communication in a Complex World (CC BY-ND) by Chelsea Himsworth; Kaylee Byers; and Jennifer Gardy

From the University of British Columbia, this textbook covers many of the principles of science communication, as well as the theory and practice of risk communication, specifically. The content is divided into three main sections: 1) the ‘mission’ (why you are communicating), 2) the ‘message’ (what you are communicating), and 3) the ‘medium’ (how you are communicating).
