“The whole of Science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking “

By Albert Einstein.

The Science Department at Waterloo Secondary School aims to open the curiosity of students’ minds about everything that surrounds them in their everyday lives. Doing Science at Waterloo Secondary will help students understand things around them, solve problems and train their minds to think logically and methodically.

All teachers of the Science Department are trained graduates and are well qualified and skilled in their areas of study.

In the Science Department there are three main clubs: the Science club, the Astronomy club and the Environment Club. These clubs were introduced to actively engage students in the learning process through field trips, debates, games and much more. The Chemistry club has been recently introduced (in September 2019).It is a subset of the Science club. Students from the Chemistry club entered the Chemistry Olympiad Competition of Trinidad and Tobago and were very successful in the first round of the competition.

In previous years students have placed among the top students in the Caribbean at the CSEC level in Agricultural Science and at the CAPE level in Environmental Science. Waterloo Secondary has also won multiple Science Scholarships (including TWO OPEN SCHOLARSHIPS). These achievements have placed the school on the map and have enticed students from different schools to transfer to Waterloo Secondary School.

Generally the CSEC and CAPE results of the Science Department at Waterloo Secondary School are always exceptional.

We look forward and welcome our prospective students to Waterloo Secondary School, where parents can rest assured that their child’s education will be in good hands.

Waterloo Secondary School Astronomy Club

Waterloo Secondary School Astronomy Club was founded in September 2005. Dr. Bruno Mitchell of Port of Spain donated our first telescope, a 10 inch reflector telescope. This club has grown leaps and bound bringing awareness of astronomy from a practical approach. In 2010, our club won a National Astronomy competition at UWI.; but our main focus is bringing this field ‘ASTRONOMY ‘ to the students ,families and communities around our school and beyond.

Although our club is run by the school’s Form 6 students its open to all. Our current Club President is Nadine Ballack and teachers in charged of Club are Mr. Jerome Ramdahin and Mr. Denzil Noel. Night’s viewing are done at least once per term. Please feel free to check out our facebook page [Waterloo Secondary School Astronomy Club]
