The exam will cover material that a well-read junior high school chemistry student is likely to have come across in the course of studies. Students may expect to find a few probing and demanding questions on some of the main topics of high school chemistry. Certain mathematical skills closely related to the study of chemistry will be tested, and there will be a few questions on chemical topics not normally covered in high school.

Energy and environmental risk:

What do YOU want the
future of energy to be?

No energy source is risk free. All forms of managed energy (hydroelectric, nuclear, fossil fuels, wood, biofuels, solar, wind, tidal) carry risks of different types.  

Join Maurice Dusseault and Stephen Evans in a discussion about the risk associated with different forms and sources of energy and how these possible hazards are often misunderstood, poorly estimated, or deliberately misrepresented.
